I'm a post-doctoral researcher at the Neuroimaging of Epilepsy Laboratory at the Montreal Neurological Institute & Hospital under the supervision of Drs. Neda and Andrea Bernasconi. My research focus is developing clinically-accessible algorithms to better localize the seizure focus in temporal lobe epilepsy patients using machine learning.
Prior to my current training, I completed my BEng (Hons.) in Biotechnology at Panjab University, Chandigarh, India in 2012. I then went on to complete a thesis-based MSc in Neuroscience at the University of Western Ontario in 2015. I studied temporal lobe epilepsy in a kainate-based rat model to characterize the disruptions of the functional networks using ultra-high field resting-state fMRI, under the supervision of Drs. Stan Leung and Seyed Mirsattari. Subsequently, I completed my PhD at McGill in April 2022, focussing on the quantification of epileptogenic lesions using multimodal MRI to improve lesion detection rates in MRI-negative epilepsies.
