Areas of expertise
My research addresses the development of brain circuitry early in life, when anatomical and synaptic plasticity coordinate dramatically to produce functional circuits in the mammalian cortex. Using high resolution optical stimulation and recording combined with molecular, genetic and electrophysiological methods, I aim to define how neonatal sensory experience influences the normal and pathological cortical circuit development that underlies lifelong brain function.
