I am characterized by a strongly multidisciplinary background in physics, engineering and neuroscience, and I work at the interface between these disciplines.
My main research interest is currently how complex synchronization patterns and collective dynamics emerge in non-linear physical and neural systems. I approach this topic primarily by numerically and experimentally investigating diverse electronic circuits based on single transistors, amplifiers, field-programmable analog arrays (FPAAs), custom integrated circuits and gas-discharge tubes. I attempt to establish relationships with properties of neural activity recorded at the macro-scale (e.g., whole-brain functional MRI), meso-scale (e.g., neurons cultured on micro- arrays) and micro-scale (e.g., single neurons).
I am particularly interested in the application of non-linear dynamical concepts to bio-inspired robotics, brain-machine interfaces and distributed systems.
