Experience
Graduate Student Researcher, 08/2019 to Current
Purdue UniversityShelbyville, IN,
  • Master thesis under Dr. Alfredo Fontanini
  • My lab studies the brain regions that processes taste and also examine how expectations, emotions and all other senses impact the way we perceive taste
  • My project involves studying and characterizing a population of neuropeptides in the insular cortex which are believed to be involved in regulating feeding behavior.
Graduate Research Assistant, 08/2018 to 06/2019
University Of South CarolinaSC, State,
  • Graduate research assistant under Dr.Hiyaa Ghosh at National Centre for Biological Sciences, Bangalore
  • Worked on a project that involved studying the role of Transcription Factor 2 or E2-2 in determining the fate and potential plasticity of the adult neural stem cells (NSC) during adult neurogenesis. Using Immunohistochemistry and single cell sequencing, performed a cell lineage tracing and fate mapping study to understand the role of E2-2 in regulating NSC differentiation, fate decisions and niche responses during adult hippocampal neurogenesis.
Undergraduate Research Assistant, 02/2018 to 06/2018
Metra RailChicago, IL,
