My main interest is in finding out how sleep helps our brain organize information. While trying to answer this question, I noticed that we first have to understand more about how the brain stores memories. This, again, required us to use new methods that allow analysing large electrophysiological and brain imaging data with regard to memory processing. Thus, my lab works mainly in these three areas: sleep and its function, tracing the memory engram, and applying machine learning to hypothesis testing.
