Description of research and teaching

Our ability to see in vastly varying conditions depends critically on the outstanding performance of vision. Vision begins in the neural circuits of the retina, which operates with a remarkable fidelity. I study novel signal processing mechanisms and their adaptive dynamics at the synaptic and cellular-element level across the entire neural circuit of the retina in conditions where only a handful of light quanta underlie detection. My research combines several fields of biosciences and natural sciences.
