Research interests

My research interest lies in structure and dynamics of complex networks, especially neuronal networks. I'm analyzing the factors that contribute to spontaneous synchronized spiking, i.e., the network bursts, in neuronal networks. I'm especially interested in the effect of network structure and synaptic mechanisms on the emergence of network bursts. In addition, I study methods for quantifying the complexity in structure and dynamics of complex systems.
