My interests are in the neurobiology of emotion. My research is focussed on understanding changes in emotional neurocircuitry associated with psychiatric disorders like depression and anxiety. We also examine the repair induced by both environmental and pharmacological treatments that ameliorate the symptomatology of these psychiatric disorders. Besides running a lab and working with a team of highly motivated graduate students, i am actively engaged in public outreach activities. I served on the public outreach committee of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai where we organized several diverse activities to reach out to both school students, undergraduates and the city of Mumbai at large.
