  • Research Interests:The formation of functional neural circuits is orchestrated by multiple innate genetic programs and shaped by environmental stimuli. A failure in one of these mechanisms may lead to dysfunction in the central nervous system. The goal of my research is to investigate abnormal brain circuit formation associated with spontaneous and acquired neurological and metabolic conditions. Studying idiopathic and acquired abnormal brain circuit wiring facilitates our understanding of the fundamental mechanisms underlying neural network development, synaptic plasticity, and circuit dynamics, and sheds light on neurodevelopmental and metabolic diseases such as childhood epilepsy, autism, and obesity.
