Rohan Gala, Ph.D.

Scientist II

Rohan Gala joined Allen Institute as a Scientist I in 2018. His research is aimed at analyzing multimodal observations of brain cells to understand neuronal identity. He obtained his PhD in Physics from Northeastern University where he studied statistical models of associative learning, and designed computational tools to analyze neuron connectivity and morphology. Rohan completed his undergraduate studies in Engineering Physics from IIT Bombay (Mumbai, India).
