I'm currently a post-doctoral researcher in the Computational Social Affective Neuroscience Laboratory at Dartmouth college working with Luke Chang where I also competed my PhD. My research broadly focuses on how humans form psychological impressions and construct neural representations of other people and ultimately how these representations change as they are transmitted between individuals. Checkout my research for more info.
I've also worked as a PhD research intern at Microsoft Research NYC with Duncan Watts and Sid Suri. During this time my work focused on building large scale web-based field experiments to study human cooperation in naturally occurring social networks.
Previously I received a BA from the University of Rochester where I studied the origins of conceptual knowledge at the Concepts, Actions, and Objects Lab with Jessica Cantlon and Brad Mahon. Subsequently I worked as a lab manager at the Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience Lab with Jason Mitchell and Joe Moran.
I was originally born in New Delhi, India but have lived and grown up outside New York City since I was about three years old. I have one younger sister who works as a kick-ass journalist.
And yup that's a structural scan of my brain; I used to make this 3d print.
