Varun Saravanan, PhD

Varun trained as an engineer before transitioning to neuroscience for his PhD from Emory University. For his dissertation, he studied the role of dopamine in sensorimotor learning using songbirds. Varun has taken on a Data Scientist role in the Brain Modulation Lab where he will update and maintain the infrastructure for collecting, storing and analyzing data collected by the lab. Additionally, he will follow open data and open access policies to foster collaborations between human clinical neuroscience researchers first in the MGH/MIT area and eventually further beyond as well.
