Tell us a little about yourself:

I am a postdoctoral researcher at University of Cambridge. My research focuses on understanding dementia better and developing accurate methods to better diagnose different dementia syndromes. I finished my Ph.D. at The University of Sydney, Australia in 2020 and prior to that, I worked as a researcher at a local hospital in my home town of Bangalore, India.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself:

I enjoy learning about new cultures and their history through their food. I have travelled to 23 countries, most of which have centered around exploring local cuisines and learning about cultures.

Why did you choose to work in dementia?

I was fascinated with the field of memory ever since I first heard about Clive Wearing. To understand how memory abilities function, I started studying Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia syndromes, which paved the way for a career in dementia research.
