Abhi Aggarwal

Research Associate II


Abhi is in the Optophysiology program at the Allen Institute for Neural Dynamics. His research is focused on developing biosensors and tools for neural imaging in vivo. He received a BSc in Biology and Chemistry from University of Alberta, Alberta, Canada. He later joined Kaspar Podgorski’s lab at HHMI Janelia Research Campus where he developed genetically encoded neurotransmitter indicators for recording synaptic activity. Abhi joined the Allen Institute in Jan 2022, where he is working to engineer novel tools to help scientists study computations that occur in individual neurons in the brain.
