Srikanth Padmala

Assistant Professor

Centre For Neuroscience

Indian Institute of Science

I received a Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering from Osmania University, Hyderabad followed by a Master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Memphis, USA. Then, I worked for more than a decade in Dr. Luiz Pessoa’s laboratory of Cognition and Emotion investigating brain mechanisms of emotional processing and interactions between emotion, motivation, and cognition in healthy adult humans using behavioural and functional MRI (fMRI) techniques. As a National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellow, I investigated interactions between appetitive and aversive processing during perception and attention and received my PhD from the inter-disciplinary Neuroscience and Cognitive Science (NACS) program at University of Maryland, USA. After my PhD, I continued working at the University of Maryland as an Assistant Research Scientist and joined Centre for Neuroscience as an Assistant Professor in March 2019.
