I am a Sir Henry Wellcome Fellow in Neuroscience at the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics, University of Oxford. My current work with Professor Andy King examines the neural code for speech recognition as well as sequence learning and generalization. My long-term research goal is to understand how the brain learns and acquires knowledge about the sensory world and transfers it to novel experiences. I have been endorsed by the Royal Society as an 'Emerging Leader' in Neuroscience (2015).
I obtained my PhD in Neuroscience from the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging at University College London where I worked with Professor Tim Griffiths on auditory cognition and time perception. Previously, I read for a Master's in Neuroscience at the University of Oxford (Balliol College) as a Clarendon Scholar, and a Bachelor's in Electronics and Communication Engineering from the Delhi College of Engineering.
I established the Timing Research Forum, an open society to promote multidisciplinary research on time. I'm one of the organizers of the 1st Conference of the Timing Research Forum to be held in Strasbourg, France from 23-25 October, 2017.
I also founded EduChroma, a startup that provides personalized career mentoring for students, academics and professionals.
