Background and previous research experience
I completed my BSc. in Microbiology from St. Xavier's College (Kolkata) in India in 2010. During this time I worked on two projects:
Main areas of interest
I am interested in neuroscience and evolutionary biology. My main interest lies in understanding how information is processed in the central nervous system, how decisions are made in the brain and conveyed to the respective motor output systems.
I will investigate the neuronal basis of directed locomotion using Drosophila melanogaster as a model system. The objective of my project is to map and characterize the higher order neuronal centers that control directed walking in Drosophila melanogaster.
