Personal profile

Biography

I received my PhD in Neurophysiology followed by postdoctoral training in Prof.Takao K. Hensch’s Lab at RIKEN Brain Science Institute of JAPAN studying experience-dependent plasticity of visual circuits. I joined Department of Physiology at Monash University in 2015.

Research interests

 My research interests are;

  • Plasticity of neurons and circuits, structural & physiological experience-dependent plasticity
  • Developmental critical periods
  • Inhibitory interneurons and network excitation-inhibition balance
  • Neurodevelopmental disorders; schizophrenia and epilepsy 

Research area keywords
