I am a software research engineer working on tools for neural simulations, as well as supporting the team in their work on neural data analysis (spike sorting) and electrophysiology. My main focus is the development of Brian 2, the most recent version of the Brian simulator. This simulator combines an easy-to-use and flexible high-level syntax (models are described in Python scripts using mathematical notation for the equations governing the model dynamics) with an efficient simulation framework based on a modular approach that transparently generates, compiles and executes code.
