Additional information

My dissertation project aims at a detailed understanding of the first stages of signal processing in the mouse retina. Using large high-resolution electronmicroscopy data and machine learning tools,  I work on obtaining a wiring diagram of photoreceptors and bipolar cells and detailed biophysical models of bipolar cells.
