About me


I am currently working as a post doctoral research scientist. I am based in IST Austria, and previously at the Oxford university. I am working in Dr. Tim Vogels’ group, for the ICGeneology project.

I completed my Ph.D at the Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology, Warsaw, Poland. I was working in the laboratory of Neuroinformatics, under the supervision of Prof. Hab. Daniel K. Wójcik. Here, I studied the propagation of currents in a brain tissue.

Before this, I was working at National Center for Biological Sciences, Bangalore, in the laboratory of Prof. Upinder S. Bhalla, where I was involved in development of user interface for MOOSE v2.0 and in the visualization tool called Moogli.

In my previous life, I was writing software for modems and building components for a Solar telescope.
