I am a tenure track junior professor for Neurobiology of Vocal Communication. My lab will study the neural basis of flexible song sequencing. I did my postdoc with Michael Brainard at UCSF studying context-dependent song learning in Bengalese finches. As a PhD student with Andreas Nieder at the University of Tübingen we established electrophysiology in crows to study the neural basis of executive control in birds. I did the lab work for my master’s thesis with Michale Fee at MIT, recording the development of respiratory patterns for song in juvenile zebra finches.
