Personal profile

Biography

I obtained my PhD at Kyoto University and held postdoctoral positions at University College London and Technical University of Munich. I am currently a Group Leader in Neuroscience in the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute and the Department of Physiology.

Research interests

My research focuses on how a single neuron in a cortical network computes sensory information in vivo at the level of circuits and synaptic inputs. I use a variety of techniques, including in vivo electrophysiology, in vivo optogenetics and in vivo two photon calcium imaging in my research. In particular, I developed a method to perform single cell plasmid electroporation in vivo to functionally characterised neurons. This method helps revealing how functionally unique neurons can achieve their computation in sensory processing in vivo
