Sensory systems are organised to map stimulus spaces in the brain. They have evolved for optimised extraction of relevant information from the environment for each organism, and can adapt to different conditions by plastic changes. I am interested in studying how the neurons wire together to interpret sensory signals, how they change their wiring through learning and how this organisation can be revealed by investigating spatiotemporal activity patterns. In order to study realistic scenarios, I also work on development of tools for simulation and analysis of large scale brain models and high dimensional data.
