Research Themes

Cellular and Molecular Neuroscience

Developmental Neuroscience


I am interested in understanding the principles of neuronal network organization, how such patterns form developmentally, and what they tell us about information processing in the brain.

I am further interested in developing modelling systems that allow a better understanding and experimental tests of the functional role of neuronal topology at the cellular scale ("micro-connectomics").

Research Focus


Neuronal networks

Graph theory



Clinical conditions

No diseases indicated


Cell culture

Computational modelling

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
