I study how circuits in the Drosophila ventral nerve cord, the analog of the spinal cord, translate movement instructions from the brain into leg movements during walking. I combine markerless motion capture, electrophysiology, and two-photon imaging of neural activity in behaving flies with connectomics.
I received my PhD in Neuroscience from Bielefeld University. Prior to joining the Ache lab, I was a DFG Postdoctoral Fellow in the Tuthill Lab at the University of Washington in Seattle.
