RESEARCH FOCUS
I have been studying cellular and circuit-level changes in animal models of fear and anxiety via combining different approaches including electrophysiology, behaviour and pharmacogenetics. My current research focuses on identification of physiological and pathological alterations in hippocampal network oscillations and their relation to hippocampal engrams upon emotional memory formation.
