Biography

I am a first year grad student in Dr. Hee Jung Chung's lab.

Research Interests

Epilepsy, Neuronal Excitability, Homeostatic Plasticity

Research Description

Our goals are to understand how epilepsy mutations affect ion channel function and lead to hyperexcitability in inherited or de novo epilepsy, and identify molecular mechanisms that alter ion channels to cause hyperexcitability in acquired epilepsy.
