Vaishnavi Narayanan


PhD Candidate

Research Interests: Computational Models ; Biophysical mean-field models ; Visual processing ; Target Selection ; Decision-making

About me: I pursued Electronics Engineering at BITS Pilani, India. For my bachelor thesis, I studied bio-inspired computer vision for autonomous navigation at National University of Singapore. To further my knowledge of sensory processes in the brain, I pursued a Master's degree in Cognitive Neuroscience at Maastricht University. My master thesis was on macroscopic model of the saccade generation under the supervision of Dr. Gorka Zamora-Lopez and Prof. Gustavo Deco at UPF Barcelona. As a PhD candidate, I am involved in developing biophysically-plausible models of the visuomotor system and currently focus on target selection.
