About

About Me

I am a Professor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at New Jersey Institute of Technology, having joined the Department in 1996. My primary research interests are in the area of dynamical systems with a a focus on problems in mathematical neuroscience. i develop rigorous mathematical techniques to analyze oscillatory behavior arising in different neuronal networks.

Research Interests

My research focuses on the applications of dynamical systems to mathematical neurophysiology. Past studies have included work modeling sleep rhythms in the thalamocortical system, phase precession of hippocampal place cells, persistent activity in cortical networks, uses of synaptic plasticity in central pattern generating networks and sustained activity in random graphs.

Current Research

I am currently working on several projects that include developing a geometric method to analyze two-dimensional maps in the context of phase-locking, understanding the role of certain linear currents within a cell that may give rise to oscillations and determining the entrainment properties of circadian oscillators to different light-dark protocols.
