I study how admixture and population history shape the genetic risk for neurodegenerative diseases.
We study the genetic basis of developmental robustness and plasticity using nematode C. elegans as a model system.
A cross-disciplinary foundation in biological science, while allowing students the flexibility to choose their own path of inquiry.
I use electrophysiological techniques to understand and quantify interactions in neuronal networks.
