I'm currently an Assistant Professor in the School of Mathematics at the University of Minnesota. 

Broadly, my work focuses on developing new mathematical techniques to be used with state-of-the-art experimental protocols in order to advance our understanding of biological systems, while advancing the field of applied mathematics. Specifically, I plan on exploring the ability of interneuron subpopulations (e.g., PV, SOM, VIP) and glial cells (e.g., astrocytes) to modulate the dynamics of cortical networks in different physiological contexts. 

During my research journey, I've had the opportunity to collaborate with amazing theoreticians, including Brent Doiron (University of Chicago), Alla Borisyuk (University of Utah), and Sean Lawley (University of Utah), as well as a number of experimentalists, including Hiroyuki Kato (University of North Carolina) and Hillel Adesnik (UC Berkeley).
