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 completed a PhD in Neuroscience at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging, University College London that was funded by a Wellcome Trust Senior Clinical Fellowship award (Cortical Bases of Auditory Perception) to Professor Tim Griffiths. 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, magnetoencephalography and dynamic causal modelling.
For my postdoctoral research, I moved to the Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris and worked with Dr. Daniel Pressnitzer and Professor Shihab Shamma on a European Research Council Advanced Grant (Adaptive Auditory Mind) project examining neural correlates of rapid learning and implicit 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 led by Professor Andy King. I use a combination of behavioural, electrophysiological and computational approaches to understand the neural mechanisms of auditory sequence learning and generalization.
In 2015, I was endorsed as an emerging leader in Neuroscience by the Royal Society.
