Brief Biography: 

I hail from a small Indian city named Nagpur, the geographical center of the country. I did my undergraduate in the Bachelor of Science Master of Science (BSMS) program at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER), Pune. IISER had an inter-disciplinary research-integrated curriculum covering natural sciences and humanities. For the Master's thesis, I worked at Harvard Medical School on noninvasive brain stimulation markers for cognitive decline in Alzheimer's. I recently graduated from the Master's program at the Duke Global Health Institute (DGHI). I am currently working as a Senior Research Aide at Duke on cross-cultural implementation of RDoC tasks and paradigms (games) that can give us insight into risky behaviors, loss of inhibition, and other behaviors responsible for harmful substance use. I also lead the Association for Socially Applicable Research (ASAR), a non-governmental, not-for-profit think tank and student-led advocacy group in India.
