Research Interests:

The moment that got me interested in neuroscience was a Brain-Computer-Interface seminar quite a while ago, where the thoughts of a volunteer sitting in front of us was being displayed in the computer. Being jaw-dropped by what I witnessed, I got tremendously curious about how brain actually works. Over the years, I am working on understanding the structural and network level alterations in the brain that occurs during various psychological and neurological disorders. And until now I have very well realized that understanding the brain is unreasonable, but I still believe that understanding these small alterations during various disorders would definitely move us into that direction.
