Research Interests

As a Systems Biology lab we combine experiments and theory to understand the design principles of biological networks: 1) Computation and functional dynamics in neural circuits with a single neuron resolution. 2) Plasticity in neural networks (Learning and memory, aging, neurodegenerative diseases) 3) Phenotypic variability: from gene expression and neural activity to behavior 4) Evolutionary and functional genomics: Transcription networks and the relationship between gene expression and genome structure.

Dissertation Topics

  1. Trans-generational epigenetic memory.
  2. Genetic and neuronal mechanisms underlying Learning and Memory, Aging and Neurodegenerative diseases.
  3. Systems Biology of how genes and neural networks shape behavioral outputs.
  4. Computational Biology - how sensory systems encode the environment (experiments and theory).
