Vladimir is from Latvia, a small country in the Baltic region. He obtained his bachelor’s degree from Leeds University in England. He then moved to Scotland and joined Dr. Judith Pratt’s lab at Strathclyde University in Scotland. Under the supervision of Dr. Pratt and Dr. Sakata, he finished his doctoral program exploring the site-dependent activity of the thalamic reticular nucleus using methods of electrophysiology and optogenetics. He joined the Chudasama lab in October 2019 as a postdoctoral fellow to explore the functional organization of the septo-hippocampal system and its importance in cognitive-emotional regulation. In his free time Vladimir loves to attend concerts and cinemas.
