Research Interests

I have a background in rodent electrophysiology, with specific training and expertise in patch-clamp recordings and long-term EEG monitoring, as well as training in clinical medicine. During my PhD I developed a new in vitro model of epileptogenesis to study the role of altered glutamatergic transmission in the development of epileptic networks. My current research focuses on altered synaptic transmission in animal models of chronic epilepsy and autism, and in human cortical and hippocampal tissue surgically removed from therapy-resistant epilepsy patients
