studies brains for a living


hi there,

I’m a physicist-turned-neuroscientist currently working as a fellow at Harvard University. I recently completed my PhD work at the Donders Institute in the Netherlands. For someone who always ran as far as possible from anything biology, this conversion rather happened unexpectedly and I talk about it here -

While during the day I work towards understanding what makes human brains different from that of the other animals, I like to think about science communication, education, and technology by night. If you’re wondering what that might look like and why leave physics for neuroscience, you could read this interview that appeared in the Donders PhD newsletter, for a series called “The Life of …”. Feel free to click around or say, hi on Twitter.

This is my home on the internet.
