Research Interests

I’m interested in models of the diverse functional subcircuits in the retina. Based on both anatomical information from high-resolution EM data and functional measurements from 2-photon imaging I build detailed biophysically realistic models and artificial neural network models of retinal functions. Based on the modeling, I want to understand how the functional diversity of the retinal cell types arises and what functions specific subcircuits implement.
