I completed my PhD in Australia with A/Prof. Jennifer Rodger at the end of 2016 where I investigated how non-invasive brain stimulation induces neuroplasticity in the intact and injured brain. I joined the NRIM unit in 2017 and now investigate how neuronal oscillations shape the spiking and plasticity properties of the inferior olive.
