I am, by training, a statistician, and my research focus is, predominantly, in statistical/computational neuroscience. I am interested in modeling neural spike trains, which are a sequence of electrochemical waves generated by nerve cells through changes in ion concentrations across membranes of neurons. I study multiscale and multivariate properties of spike train data, and generally, am interested in neural coding and decoding problems. Studying neural ensembles, I develop multivariate point processes to model simultaneously recorded neural ensembles. The models I develop usually focus on how the choice of time scale affects the interpretation of neural spiking activities.
