I am a postdoctoral researcher working on software tools for neural simulations as well as on neural models of sensory systems and plasticity. At the moment, I mainly focus on the development of Brian 2, the upcoming new 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.
