Join postdoc Marín and Rico labs


I did my bachelor's and master's at the University of Calcutta (India) and worked as a research assistant at the National Brain Research Centre before starting a PhD at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Israel. My doctoral study broadly encompassed the dissection of molecular dynamics across neural circuits that underlie the plasticity of drug-reinforced behaviours. I was supported by the PhD scholarship from Jerusalem Brain Community and awarded the SMART prize for excellent publication.  

As a joint postdoc in the Marin and Rico labs, I investigate the mechanisms by which drugs of abuse impact development and function of interneuron in the cerebral cortex, and how these translate into behavioural manifestations in schizophrenia disease models.  

Outside of the lab, I enjoy singing (songs of Rabindranath Tagore), listening to music, hiking, sports, and working towards societal development. I live by the words of Swami Vivekananda, “Take up an idea, devote yourself to it, struggle on it in patience, and the sun will rise for you.”
