    Prakamya Singal

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Psychiatry

    BioPrakamya is an M.D. physician-scientist from New Delhi, India who joined the Brain Stimulation Lab as a Postdoctoral Fellow in 2023. She completed her M.D. at the prestigious Vardhman Mahavir Medical College and Safdarjung Hospital in 2021 and gained extensive clinical experience treating hundreds of patients with severe psychiatric disorders using pharmacotherapy and neuromodulation therapies. She was a frontline worker during the pandemic in India and co-founded an online telehealth service providing accessible healthcare to thousands of people in remote areas.

    Her interest in Psychiatry is fuelled by her curiosity surrounding the mysteries of neurobiological mechanisms underlying mental disorders. As a primary caregiver of a parent with mental illness, her dream is to pursue a career in research and identify novel therapies and potential diagnostic biomarkers that can aid diagnosis, early screening and evidence-based medicine, and help patients understand their illness better.
    Some of her work focuses on exploring the potential utility of neurotrophic growth factors in patients with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and the use of an AI-based screening tool using subtle behavioural markers to help screen children with Autism at an early age in remote areas. She joined the coveted All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi as the leading Scientist at the Centre for Advanced Research and Excellence in Neuromodulation. Her work there focused on exploring the efficacy and safety of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation in various disorders such as schizophrenia, somatic symptom disorder, mood disorders, and stroke, and combining neuromodulation modalities with other interventional tools such as nanoparticles, assistive rehabilitation robotics and psychological and cognitive assessment tools.
    When not working, Prakamya enjoys travelling, painting, exercising, reading and attempting to cook palatable food.

  • Benjamin Singer

    Benjamin Singer

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Infectious Diseases

    BioBen Singer is a postdoctoral scholar with interests in mathematical epidemiology and global public health. Ben's research career began with an internship at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology, where he applied quantitative skills he had learnt studying physics at the University of Oxford to the study of nematode locomotion. Ben further pursued quantitative methods in life sciences in the Interdisciplinary Bioscience Doctoral Training Partnership at the University of Oxford, earning a DPhil (PhD equivalent) in mathematical methods for evaluating pandemic risk and control. During these studies he maintained an interest in global public health policy, interning with the UK government's Department for International Development, where he developed models of international COVID-19 vaccine distribution. Ben is now working in Nathan Lo's research group at Stanford, creating infectious disease models informing public health policy for schistosomiasis, hepatitis E, and other infections.
