David received his B.S. in electrical engineering and M.S. in biomedical engineering before transitioning into biology. David then earned a Ph.D. in neurobiology and behavior in the lab of Sarah Woolley at Columbia University and pursued postdoctoral training in the lab of Richard Mooney at Duke University.
David holds a patent for his work designing intelligent pacemakers, is the recipient of several fellowships and awards, and once grew his hair shoulder-length and then got a perm.

Positions

Postdoctoral

fellows

We are always interested in hearing from potential postdoctoral associates who want to study neural circuits in behaving mice. Our goal is to understand how sensory, motor and learning systems within the brain interact to store memories about the past and make predictions about the future. Successful candidates will help design and execute a research program aimed at understanding how populations of synaptically connected neurons recognize and predict self-generated sounds using tools including virtual reality, 2-photon imaging, multielectrode array recordings, in vivo intracellular physiology, optogenetics and behavior.

We are always looking for motivated students who want to understand the brain in the context of behavior.
