Current Research Interests

I am a experimental soft-condensed matter physicist working in the neuroscience field. I am studying the basic mechanisms of the brain from a dynamic perspective. I work closely with theorists Ernest Barreto and Paul So to investigate the behavior of neuronal networks utilizing mathematical models based on simple assumptions. My recent focus is on the interplay between neurons and their ionic environment.
