Research Interests:

My current research focuses on understanding the neuronal mechanisms used by the hippocampus and the surrounding medial temporal lobe to achieve episodic-like memory. Specifically, I am exploring the context-dependent and sequential activity of hippocampal cell assemblies by performing electrophysiological recordings of dorsal CA1 hippocampal pyramidal cells in rats that are running in place on a treadmill.
