I am a post-doctoral fellow in cognitive neuroscience. My research focusses on the question - how do we understand others? To this end, I use a multimodal approach ranging from machine learning, computational neuroscience, motion capture, behavioral to neuroimaging. Currently, my work focusses on understanding the phenomenon of inter-brain synchronization.
