Sameera is a doctoral student in the Integrative Neuroscience program working with Jai Yu. She graduated from Vellore Institute of Technology with a BTech in Biomedical Engineering. Thereafter, she worked as a research assistant at the Indian Institute of Science with Prof. Rishikesh Narayanan in the Cellular Neurophysiology Laboratory where she used computational modeling to understand how systems maintain stability and robustness in the face of environmental stimuli that drive learning.
Sameera’s research interests predominantly lie in the domains of learning and memory. She hopes to gain a deeper understanding of how reactivation of memories can influence the representations of the environment while learning.
