He then worked as a Scientist in the Neurology and Biomedical divisions of a premier national institute in India (Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute for Medical Sciences and Technology), following which he came to the United States for a PhD in Neurosciences. At the Center for Complex Systems and Brain Sciences at Florida Atlantic University, he studied the brain mechanisms of motor control using functional MRI. During his post-doctoral fellowship at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center / Harvard Medical School, he furthered his research interest in brain plasticity using brain stimulation techniques. He then did his Neurology residency and Clinical Neurophysiology fellowship at Rhode Island Hospital / Brown University, prior to joining as faculty at Massachusetts General Hospital.
