Katy Willard

Graduate student

I am interested in the computational units and circuits found across layers of the neocortex that support the processing of sensory information. To explore this in my DPhil, I am combining in vivo whole-cell patch clamping and computational modelling. Previously, I have graduated from both an undergraduate and a master's neuroscience degree at Oxford. During these degrees, I have worked in the King group studying how animals orient to sounds in space and temporal prediction in the cochlea, and in the Packer group exploring how faithfully action potentials propagate through axons.
