I'm a fifth-year physics graduate student at UC San Diego working on problems in Quantitative Biology. After my undergraduate in Engineering Physics from IIT Bombay, I joined Prof. Massimo Vergassola's group in 2014. My past work has largely been focused on two aspects of theoretical neuroscience: (1) the mathematical modeling of animal behavior, and (2) the neurobiology of olfaction.
