NEURAL coding, learning and memory
I obtained a BE in Electronics and Communication Engineering from the Delhi College of Engineering before moving to the University of Oxford, where I pursued a Master's in Neuroscience as a Clarendon scholar. I subsequently completed a PhD in Neuroscience working with Tim Griffiths at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging, University College London. My doctoral work focused on understanding the brain bases of auditory segregation as well as the timing of intervals in rhythmic sound sequences using a combination of behavioural and neuroimaging techniques including functional magnetic resonance imaging and magnetoencephalography.
For my postdoc, I moved to the Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris and worked with Daniel Pressnitzer and Shihab Shamma on a European Research Council funded project examining neural correlates of unsupervised learning and memory in the auditory cortex.
My current research is funded by a Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Fellowship and based at the Oxford Auditory Neuroscience Group under the supervision of Andy King. I use a combination of behavioural, electrophysiological and computational approaches to understand the neural mechanisms of perceptual learning and rapid plasticity in the auditory cortex. I am particularly interested in understanding how the brain learns to recognize complex sequences and patterns in the natural environment.
