Welcome to my website. I am a postdoctoral researcher in statistics and neuroscience at Columbia University in NYC, previously a phd student in neuroscience at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver and a visiting scientist at the Allen Institute for Brain Science in Seattle.
My primary research interest is to investigate the neural content and dynamics of self-initiated movements with a focus on algorithm and model development. Self-initiated movements form the basis of volitional acts and are related to millennia-old debates about free will and have now become a topic of scientific investigation thanks largely to novel experimental neuroscience recording methods.
I carry out research in multiple areas including developing processing tools for large-scale neuronal datasets and recording neural activity from behaving mice:
I am always interested in collaborations with other reseachers especially in these areas:
Thanks for visiting.
