I’m a fifth year PhD student in the Integrated Program in Neuroscience at McGill University, under the supervision of Drs. Neda and Andrea Bernasconi. Currently, at the Neuroimaging of Epilepsy Laboratory colocated at the McConnell Brain Imaging Centre and Montreal Neurological Institute, my research focusses on quantification of multimodal MRI to better characterize malformations of cortical development in MRI-negative epilepsies by using advanced statistics and machine learning, with the objective to improve lesion detection rates over the contemporary computational methods and techniques.
Prior to my current training, I completed my BEng (Hons.) in Biotechnology at Panjab University, Chandigarh 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.
