I started an MD-PhD training program in France in 2015 and joined ELSC in 2017 to complete a PhD in computational neuroscience. I enjoy Jerusalem and its stones, its light, its voices and its music, from Gregorian chants to Hasidic techno.

I study network mechanisms of frequency selectivity in the primary auditory cortex of rodents, under the supervision of Prof. Israel Nelken and David Hansel, using both numerical and analytical tools. Specifically, I compare experimental data from Nelken's lab with simulations run on a large-scale spiking neural network comprising various populations of excitatory and inhibitory neurons.
