I am applied mathematician and neuroscientist. I study the dynamics of neural activity in the human brain.

I spend my time trying o understand neurophysiology of Parkinson's disease and other neuro-disorders (as well as that of the healthy brain!).

You can look at some attempts to describe my research here (here), here (here), and here (here).
