### About Me

The research of Victor Matveev is in the area of computational neuroscience, and is focused primarily on biophysical modeling and numerical simulations of synaptic function and its mechanisms. In his work, Victor Matveev employs analytical methods as well as a variety of computational techniques, from stochastic modeling to numerical solution of partial and ordinary differential equations. Victor Matveev performs most of his work in collaboration with experimental neurophysiologists, and develops models to explain and fit the experimental data. His current projects include the study of the mechanisms of short-term synaptic facilitation and other calcium-dependent processes involved in neurotransmitter secretion, and the modeling of presynaptic calcium diffusion and buffering. To facilitate his research, Victor Matveev also has been working on the development of a software application designed for solving the reaction-diffusion equation arising in the study of intracellular calcium dynamics ("Calcium Calculator").
