I am an engineer turned computational neuroscientist with a research focus on building mathematical models and applying computational techniques to study the pathophysiology of various neurological and psychiatric conditions such as Parkinson's disease, OCD and addiction. Specifically to understand the effect of various therapeutic techniques such as pharmaceutical medications and deep brain stimulation
My primary research interest is in studying compulsivity in the psychiatric spectrum . I employ both experimental and computational methodologies for a better understanding of compulsive and impulsive behaviours in OCD and addiction.
