Auditory Neuroscience and Neuronal coding of sensory information

Currently I am doing a PhD with Prof. Andrew King and Dr. Kerry Walker. I am interested in how neurons represent sensory information and what are the underlying computational principles of that representation. I address these questions in the auditory system of ferrets and mice using different techniques such as in vivo 2-photon Ca2+ imaging, electrophysiological recordings, computational and modelling approaches.


I obtained a combined BSc & MSc degree in Biochemistry at the University of Oxford. I then graduated with an MSc in Neuroscience degree at Oxford where I worked with Prof. Colin Akerman on cortical connectivity and its effects on synaptic plasticity and with Prof. Andrew King on computational modelling of brain adaptive responses to sounds.
