About Me

I am a Cognitive scientist, who is on the lookout for the better understanding of how neural commotion inspires and shapes human intelligence and memory networks. More recently, I have been converging my work to the multidisciplinary realm of cognitive science to develop artificial neural network models design that is consistent with cognitive theories of how our brain works. Presently, I work at Virtual Humans and Synthetic Societies Lab at UT Dallas as Research Engineer and as Graduate Research Assistant, on various research work (including mixed reality, Deep learning-based network architecture for NLP and Computer vision, model fit estimation method) with Dr. Richard Golden and Dr. Marjorie A. Zielke.

More recently, I have been converging my work to the multidisciplinary realm of cognitive science to conduct research on human memory and emotion network, with an aim to reconnoiter unconscious brain processing utilizing artificial neural network and mixed reality based multi-modal experimental design that are consistent with cognitive theories of how our brain works. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from Cochin University of Science and Technology (2008-2012) and I am pursuing Master of Science degree in Applied Cognition and Neuroscience, specializing in cognitive modeling and intelligent system from the UT Dallas - School of behavioral and brain science.

In my personal time, I work on memory and emotion network, with an aim to reconnoiter unconscious brain processing utilizing artificial neural network (Deep learning), fMRI, and mixed reality based multi-modal experimental design. I like to generate new-fangled concepts/hypothesis and formulate possible explanations to related complications of my near thoughts.

In my years of professional research and work, I have had the experience of working with vivid topics and technology, including: Participatory design & research, Statistical Research methods, Artificial Neural networks/Machine learning, Mixed Reality(VR/AR), Service oriented computing, Knowledge management, Game development and implementation of Research/Automation tools. I am always interested in learning opportunities that will allow me to use my various skills to dynamically transform and promote cognition based research in the benefits of humanity specifically helping small children’s.
