Neurons operate in a noisy and dynamically complex environment. I use stochastic analysis and dynamical systems theory to study the interplay between noise and dynamics in the brain.

Specific research interests:

- Statistical dynamics of cortical circuits.
- The role of the basal ganglia in motor learning and motor function.
- Pathophysiology of Parkinson's disease and therapeutic mechanisms of deep brain stimulation.
- Spatiotemporally nonlocal stochastic dynamics and linear response techniques.
