Joey Broussard

Gerard Joey Broussard

Ph.D.
Postdoctoral Research Associate
Joined September 2018
Joey is a postdoctoral research associate who joined the lab following his graduate research at University of California, Davis. His research is focused on uncovering the principles of information encoding in the parallel fiber to Purkinje cell pathway of the cerebellum. He develops and utilizes novel genetically encoded tools and optical recordings from awake, behaving rodents in the service of this aim.
Junuk Lee

Junuk Lee

Ph.D.
Postdoctoral Research Associate
Joined September 2017

Junuk is a postdoctoral research associate who joined the lab following earlier postdoctoral research at Princeton University and Stanford University, and graduate research at Seoul National University (South Korea). He is interested in the role of neuromodulators on synaptic and neuronal properties in the deep cerebellar nuclei.

Marlies Oostland

Marlies Oostland

Ph.D.
Postdoctoral Research Associate
Joined January 2018

Marlies is a postdoctoral research associate who joined the lab following postdoctoral research at the University of Edinburgh (UK) and graduate research at the University of Amsterdam (the Netherlands). She is now combining her expertise of in vivo electrophysiology with the lab's expertise in cognitive function of the cerebellum. She is studying the neuronal computations in the cerebellum underlying the cognitive process of decision making, using behavioral paradigms developed in the Wang lab.

Jessica Verpeut

Jessica Verpeut

Ph.D.
Postdoctoral Research Associate
Joined July 2015
Jessica is a postdoctoral research associate who joined the lab following her graduate research at Rutgers University. She is interested in understanding how normal maturation of the neocortex requires lobule-specific cerebellar activity. Jessica investigates posterior cerebellum influence on flexible and social behavior using chemogenetic tools in mice.
