As a computational neuroscientist, I look into build models of the brain using large-scale neural networks. I am currently looking at the Drosophila Melanogaster as part of the Fruit Fly Brain Observatory project, building new software to help researchers and students explore the full complexity of this tiny brain

Short Biography

I am a computational neuroscientist and neuroinformatic tool developer based in Sheffield, UK. I completed my PhD in Computer Science under Dr. Eleni Vasilaki and Prof. Kevin Gurney, and am currently a neuroinformatic researcher on the Digital Fruit Fly Brain Project, under Prof. Daniel Coca and Dr. Paul Richmond

My research interests are complex networks, biological neural networks, and neurodegenerative disease, and developing the tools to open computational neuroscience up to a wider audience.
