Visiting Postdoctoral Scholar, Psych/General Psychiatry and Psychology (Adult)
BioI am currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Machine Vision and Signal Analysis at the University of Oulu, Finland, and a visiting research scholar at the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University, USA. My research is deeply rooted in the study of neural signatures and their relation to behavioral changes, especially in the context of understanding emotions and associated affective disorders. The core aim of my work is to unravel the complex neural underpinnings of emotion through the Emotion AI engine, which could lead to more effective diagnostic tools and therapeutic strategies for various emotional and behavioral disturbances.
In addition to my academic and research pursuits, I love to travel and scuba dive. I've been lucky enough to visit 51 countries and have spent more than 3,000 minutes underwater. These experiences, exploring different cultures and the world, are an ongoing and cherished part of my journey.
