Welcome to Abhishek Banerjee's Homepage. Abhi is a Senior Lecturer at Newcastle University and the Head of Adaptive Decision-making Lab at the Biosciences Institute, and working on neural circuit mechanisms underlying flexibility of animal decision-making.
Brief Bio: Abhi did his D.Phil. at University of Oxford as a Felix Scholar studying spike timing-dependent plasticity learning rules during cortical development. He was a Simons Fellow at MIT studying the dynamics of inhibitory mechanisms in Rett syndrome, a neurodevelopmental disorder in the autism spectrum. During this time, he was also a Teaching Fellow in Neurobiology at the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology, Harvard University. He was then a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow and NARSAD Young Investigator at University of Zürich.
Please email Abhi to discuss potential Ph.D. opportunities and sponsorship for externally-funded postdoctoral fellowships.
