The interaction between immune system and nervous system is complex and fascinating. As a postdoc in the Kipnis lab, I am particularly interested in how the immune system regulates the physiological functions of the nervous system, such as the sleep-wakefulness cycle, learning and memory, and perception. I will couple several techniques to dissect the underlying mechanisms during these processes, including genetics, behavior, sequencing, in vivo imaging, optogenetics, and in vivo electrophysiology.
