    While observing the world around us, we fall back upon previous experiences to make optimal inferences. I study the convergence of such sources of information that inform sensorimotor decisions and try to identify the underlying neural circuits.


    I'm a Rubicon postdoctoral fellow at Mehrdad Jazayeri's lab at MIT since 2015, supported by a grant from the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO). Previously, I worked at the NASA Ames Research Center in California, USA and at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Tuebingen, Germany. I hold degrees in engineering and cognitive neuroscience and studied in Bangalore, Palo Alto, Munich and Amsterdam.
