PhD in Computation and neural systems 2022, Caltech University 


I received my PhD from Caltech in 2022, where I developed novel behavioral and electrophysiological methods to study navigation and magnetoreception in mice and zebra finches respectively. I am interested in characterizing what neural events enable animals to find their way to resources in complex environments, the constraints that govern these successful activity patterns, and the mechanisms that allow animals to rapidly switch between different modes of behavior. To address these questions, I wirelessly record electrophysiological data from mice navigating mazes and employ modeling approaches that draw inspiration from machine learning and physics.
