I am a systems neuroscientist and electrophysiologist studying the brain’s neuronal network dynamics. I am leading our research focused on spatial memory and the involved mechanisms like theta oscillations in behaving rats, and the development of related tools.
Ph.D. from Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. I am the main developer of BrainSTEM. I have a background in Computer Science and Software Engineering with a major in Biomedical Informatics. I have experience in developing a wide range of software tools for their use in neuroscience research, including real-time experimental protocols, distributed-computing analysis platforms and web applications.
I am a systems neuroscientist with experience in studying generation of normal and abnormal rhythms and neural activity dynamics in the hippocampus and the thalamocortical system using electrophysiology and computational modelling tools. In my next research project, I will be focusing on hippocampal theta rhythm generation and its function in spatial cognition of rodents.
I am a Neuroscience Academy Denmark (NAD) fellow, currently undergoing a 10-week lab rotation at the Petersen lab. During my MSc thesis project, I studied how the neuromodulator norepinephrine impacts excitatory signalling in a mouse model of stress-induced depression. My current academic interests include the relationship between the thermoregulatory system and the alternation of sleep stages as well as how temperature manipulations may affect oscillatory patterns, memory and cognition.
