Role

Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Computational Neuroscience for the EPSRC funded Brains on Board project. In brief, my research focuses on computational models of learning, decision making and multisensory integration in the brains of insects such as the fruit fly, Drosophila Melanogaster, and the honeybee, Apis Mellifera. I am particularly interested in the mechanisms by which biologically constrained neural circuits implement normative principles of computation.

Community and Business
