I am working for a PhD in the Galliano Lab, studying neuronal plasticity in the olfactory bulb.

I am using electrophysiology and a range of histological and imaging techniques to study the induced homeostatic changes of plastic cellular and subcellular components of the olfactory bulb. We hope to determine if there is any coordination across the bulb, spatially or temporally.

I will also be working with Dr O’Leary in the Control Group, to build a model the olfactory bulb circuit.
