Before this, I was a post-doc working on similar topics at Wulfram Gerstner’s lab (EPFL, Switzerland). My PhD thesis was on the roles and connectivity of interneurons in the rodent olfactory bulb, supervised by Upinder S. Bhalla (NCBS, India). And even earlier, I did a Master’s in Physics (TIFR, India) and a Bachelor’s in Electrical and Electronics Engineering (IIT Madras, India).
