First Year Graduate Students
Abraham George is from Kottayam and he did his Bachelors in Arts and majored in Psychology, English Literature and Journalism. He is interested in music cognition, altered states of consciousness, perception biases and cognitive neuroscience. If he is not riddled with anxiety, you will find him with his nose inside some book or binging video essays on YouTube. Abraham is a musician and arranger. He is always up for a debate and is ready to discuss topics from Victorian morality to 50’s jazz to obscure 80’s anime.
He is from Agra and he did his Bachelor’s in Psychology from Banaras Hindu University. He is interested in every nooks and crannies of CogSci, especially Linguistics. He Spends most of his time in Default Mode Network.
He is from Kolkata and did his B.Tech from MIT Manipal. He is interested in exploring how Culture shapes Cognition. In his free time, he watches BBC Earth videos to draw inspiration from the animal world and learn more about their adaptive and problem-solving behavior. Occasionally he enjoys foraging for tasty Chinese treats in food aggregator apps.
Moon is From Kolkata, the city of Joy. True to the essence of her city, she is mostly found with a warm friendly smile on her lips, grateful to be a part of the adventure called life. She had a great tryst with the workings of the physical world around us in her undergraduate course before deciding to dive deeper in for her graduate studies. She completed B.SC.(H) in Physics from Maulana Azad College(under Calcutta University). Mostly likes to spend her time self-introspecting by daydreaming or dozing. Paints and writes when stressed or sad. She Is intrigued by the link of somatic states and sensations to mental states and emotions and wants to work in long term emotion processing in future.
She is from Pune, Maharashtra and she did her Bachelor’s in Biotechnology from MCASC, Pune. The relationship between Biological phenomena and Behavior brought about by mechanisms is what that fascinates her the most. She is also into the philosophies of Consciousness, what is it composed of, what is beyond it, how did it come into existence which is a long way to go but she is primarily interested in studying the Neural basis of Behavior and Cognitive Neuroscience.
Namyata is from Mumbai and has completed B.A. Psychology from Mithibai College (Autonomous), Mumbai. She is interested in consciousness, rapid cognition and the development and treatment of cognitive disorders. She can often be found learning a new language, practicing Yoga or writing.
He pursued his graduation B.Tech(EEE) from Govt. Engineering College, Thrissur. Kerala, Advanced diploma in cloud computing from NIELIT Calicut. He worked as a STEM Trainer. He interested in Brain Computer Interfaces which can be connected to IoT, Robotics, etc. for making better assistive technology for the differently abled. and the comparison study of cognitive functions of blind and deaf with normal persons.
He has completed his degree in BSc IT from St. Xavier’s College (Autonomous), Mumbai. Formerly a Full Stack Developer, he loves to code and has been for the past 5 years. By day he is a cognitive science student and by night he sits at his computer kaggling away! He has a vision of completely integrating brain and computer in the near future and believes AI is the way ahead. For his undergraduate project, he wrote a script that predicts emotions using EEG signals and to date is still working on improving the accuracy of his SVM model.
He did BE from FEAT – Annamalai University, and PG-Diploma in Embedded Systems and Design from C-DAC, Hyderabad.
