Dr. Kozlov’s research background is in sensory neuroscience and biophysics. Andrei obtained a PhD from Université Louis Pasteur de Strasbourg in the area of ion channel biophysics. During his first postdoc (ESPCI, Paris) he investigated how astrocytes modulate neural circuits in the central nervous system. Andrei’s research in sensory neuroscience has focused on auditory system. He examined the biophysics of mechanoelectrical transduction in the inner ear (at the Rockefeller University, New York), and investigated computations in auditory cortex (at the University of California, San Diego).
Dr. Kozlov joined in 2014 the Department of Bioengineering at Imperial College London, where he founded the Laboratory of Auditory Neuroscience and Biophysics. The lab, broadly speaking, focuses on how the auditory system, a keystone of human communication, achieves its remarkable sensitivity, selectivity, and invariance. We investigate both how the inner ear converts sounds into electrical signals, and how auditory cortex interprets these signals.
