Curious About the Mind...

I am a Research Scientist working on developing new statistical methods to better understand the cognitive and meta-cognitive factors affecting human learning. My work lies at the intersection of educational psychology (how humans learn and retain knowledge) and psychometrics (development of statistical tools for objective measurement of skills and knowledge).


I am currently pursuing my PhD in Cognition and Neuroscience from the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences at the University of Texas at Dallas. I work with Dr. Richard M. Golden, as a Research Scientist,  at the Cognitive Informatics and Statistics Lab. As a lab we are interested in the development and analysis of new statistical methods to advance mathematically sound theories in cognitive neuroscience.

Besides my scientific vocation, I’m also an engineer, entrepreneur, designer, and photographer. As an engineer, I have designed and developed brain-computer interfaces (2012), visible light communication modems (2013), and augmented reality displays (2014).


As a photographer, I mostly enjoy landscapes, portraits, and street photography. Born in God’s Own Country – Kerala, I now reside in one of the seven Silicon Prairies – Dallas.
