My research aims to determine some of the molecular and cellular mechanisms that control and generate behaviour in C.elegans via understanding neuronal interactions and dynamics. I use a combination of computational and experimental tools including network analysis, behavioural assays and microscopy in order to test how neuromodulation affects the synaptic connectome and how that translates to behaviour, in particular locomotion.
