I am working at Music and NeuroImaging lab in Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow. The brain is one of the most mystical parts of the human body. I often compare it to the surface beneath the oceans; we have a rough idea about it but difficult to do accurate predictions. I am trying to understand the brain and its plasticity. I hope to apply the plasticity information uncovered in my research to the effort of improving stroke rehabilitation.

Before this position, I was Ph.D. student in Nanyang Technological University under the supervision of Dr. Murukeshan Vadakke Matham, Deputy Director of COLE. My thesis was focused on the improvement of medical imaging devices, specifically fiber optic endoscope and eye imaging devices. Prior to that, I received a Master of Technology in Digital Systems from College of Engineering Pune in July 2011. I worked extensively on image processing algorithms to complete my thesis for Masters. Most of the courses were related to Image and Signal Processing. Previously, I received a Bachelor of Engineering in Electronics and Telecommunication from the University of Pune.
