I am a neurobiologist, interested in how electrogenic cells propagate their signals. During my PhD, I studied spontaneous dynamics of cortical and hippocampal networks by functional imaging techniques, image processing and computational methods. Here at Stanford, I am investigating the transduction of mechanical stimuli into ionic currents in cochlear hair cells. For this purpose, I am using both electrophysiology and imaging techniques in vitro. Specifically, I am comparing different genetic models of progressive deafness in order to understand the role of some molecules in the transduction process. Moreover, I am interested in business management of scientific ideas.
Besides research, I am a big fan of hiking and outdoor yoga activities; I enjoy good wines with good conversations, and independent movies.
