Research Interests

Why do brains seize? Our research attempts to answer this question by examining the cellular and circuit level interactions between brain cells, which result in the development of epileptic seizures. We focus on how changes to inhibitory synaptic transmission and neuroinflammatory responses relate to the emergence and termination of epileptic seizures.
