Computational Neuroscience, Signal Processing, Spike train synchrony

I am a computational neuroscientist with a physics background. My main field of interest is the development and application of methods to quantify the synchronization between two or more electrophysiological signals.

In recent years the focus of my attention has been on discrete signals and measures of spike train synchrony such as the SPIKE-distance. Currently, I concentrate on the development of methods to measure spike train synchrony between neuronal populations.

Before I worked on continuous signals, e.g. intracranial EEGs from epilepsy patients, and the objective was to evaluate the usefulness of synchronization measures for epileptic seizure prediction by means of a statistical validation.

In the past, another part of my work dealt with simulations of neuronal models (Hodgkin-Huxley, Fitzhugh-Nagumo) under the influence of noise. Finally, I did some work on nonlinear dynamics and nonlinear time series analysis.
