I am a Cognition and Neuroscience PhD student in 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. Currently, we are working on developing a new psychometric model to track how skill profiles (mental models) evolve over time. 

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). 

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 and portraits. You can see some of my clicks here. Born in God’s Own Country – Kerala, I now reside in one of the seven Silicon Prairies – Dallas. 

Everything I write in this website falls into either of these three journals:
I. The East West Academy: ideas and tutorials
II. The Statesman Gazette: everything concerning global citizens 
III. The Qualia Digest: memoirs
