We work on theoretical and computational problems in neuroscience and biophysics. In particular, we are interested in understanding how neural feature selectivity is influenced by, and to what extent is determined by, the statistics of real-world inputs. One of our long-term goals is to understand how invariant feature selectivity is achieved in cortex.
