Anirban Nandi, Ph.D.

Scientist I

Anirban Nandi joined the MAT Team at Allen Institute for Brain Science in 2018. After receiving his B.E. in Electrical Engineering from Jadavpur University, India, Anirban started his Ph.D. at Washington University in St. Louis. During his doctoral studies, he studied problems at the intersection of control theory, dynamical systems and computational neuroscience. Anirban's work was primarily focused on applying system theoretic principles to understand dynamic and control properties of neural circuits.


Research Interests

What are the cellular mechanisms at the physiology and morphology level that contribute critically towards the response properties of the neuron? To answer this question, Anirban will be involved in large-scale simulations of neural circuits to develop highly detailed computational models of single neurons and eventually integrate these models to study network dynamics.
