I am studying the specific role of cerebellum underlying neuropsychiatric disorders and neurobiological mechanisms of episodic memory. I completed my Ph.D. training in Physiological Psychology at the University of Dusseldorf, Germany, with expertise in systematic neuroscience and psychopharmacology. Then I moved to New Orleans LA, United States, to study neuro-cortical connections. Afterward, I have deep interest in how neurons communicate with each other and decided to move to Duluth MN, United States, for doing research associated with synaptic transmission. Presently I am working in the studies of autism and schizophrenia with the application of electrophysiology, in vivo Ca2+ imaging, chemogenetic, optogenetic, immunochemistry, behavior, and genetic animal models to decipher their intrinsic cerebello-cerebral circuitry.
