I am a Post Doctoral Researcher in the laboratory of György Buzsáki at New York University School  of Medicine. The ultimate aim of my research is to shed light on the intricate connection between neuromodulators and the dynamic states of neural networks, with a particular focus on their potential role in the onset and progression of brain disorders such as epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease, autism, and dementia.
