Kishore Kuchibhotla, PhD
Assistant Professor, Psychological and Brain Sciences
Principal Investigator

Kishore grew up in Connecticut before going to MIT where he earned bachelor degrees in Physics and Brain/Cognitive Science and minored in Political Science. He went on to earn his PhD in Biophysics at Harvard University under the mentorship of Drs. Brian Bacskai and Bradley Hyman. Kishore completed his postdoctoral work at the Skirball Institute at NYU with Dr. Robert Froemke. In his spare time, Kishore is a bit of a political junkie having had a few stints working in Washington, DC as a policy analyst and as a consultant at McKinsey where he advised various government and non-governmental agencies. He likes to play tennis, basketball, eat other people's cooking, and watch the latest season of [insert binge-worthy show here].


Ina Shehu
Research associate (starting Spring 2018)

Ina grew up in New York City and graduated from the City University of New York - Hunter College in 2015 with a B.S. in neurobiology and neurosciences. She worked for Dr. Robert Froemke as an undergraduate and then afterwards as a research technician where she focused on whether and how cochlear implants engage central auditory plasticity. Her focus in the lab will be two-photon imaging of neural populations as mice learn context-switching behavioral tasks. When not in the lab, she likes to go to concerts, travel and is a GoT buff. Winter is definitely coming.


Tom Hindmarsh Sten
Research collaborator

Tom grew up in Sweden and moved to New York City to attend New York University where he received a BS in neural science in 2017. He is now pursuing his PhD at Rockefeller University and collaborates with the Kuchibhotla lab using computational and theoretical tools to gain insight into the mechanisms of sensorimotor learning, both from a behavioral and neural perspective. He likes to spend time with his wife and is an avid cook.


Sarah Elnozahy
Undergraduate research assistant

Sarah Elnozahy grew up in Austin, Texas and is now an undergraduate Computational Neuroscience major at Johns Hopkins University. Her focus in the lab will be in running behavioral experiments, as well as analyzing neural data of mice performing stimulus-action association tasks. She likes to spend her free time playing volleyball and finding the best Tex-Mex in whatever city she is in.
