I’m a first year PhD student in the Integrated Program in Neuroscience at McGill University, under the supervision of Drs. Neda, and Andrea Bernasconi. In February 2015, I completed my thesis-based MSc at the Western University in London, Ontario. I received my BEng (Hons.) in Biotechnology at Panjab University in Chandigarh, India, in 2012.
I studied temporal lobe epilepsy in a kainate-based rat model for my Master’s thesis to describe the disruptions of the functional networks using ultra-high field resting-state fMRI.
Currently, at the Neuroimaging of Epilepsy Laboratory at the MNI, I am exploring cortical and sub-cortical features to better characterize malformations of cortical development in MRI-negative epilepsies by using machine learning algorithms on multi-modal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data, with the objective to improve detection rates over the contemporary computational methods and techniques.
