Deepa works as the lab manager and a research assistant in the Brain Bridge Lab. She is broadly interested in how the brain integrates different senses to form a cohesive experience of the world, and how this perception interfaces with other functions, like memory. Deepa majored in Neuroscience and Cognitive Science at the University of Michigan, where she received her B.S. In her free time, Deepa enjoys calligraphy, cats, and sending snail mail to her friends!
