We are pleased to welcome Nima Mirkhani to the Unit. Nima has joined the Bogacz Group as a Postdoctoral Researcher to explore the effect of neurostimulation in neurological and psychiatric disorders using computational models.

Nima graduated from the University of Tehran in Mechanical Engineering in 2013 and later obtained his MSc from the same university. During his PhD in health sciences and technology at ETH Zurich, he focused on investigating novel spatially selective drug delivery strategies in cancer using living microrobots.

At the Unit, his research uses computational models to study the effect of brain stimulation in neurological and psychiatric disorders using computational models. Specifically, he is developing mathematical models to optimise the suppression of pathological oscillations in disorders like Parkinson's. Moreover, Nima is also interested in studying altered perceptual inference in psychiatric conditions, especially in the context of autism.
