Dr. Gihan Weerasinghe

Postdoctoral Researcher

Gihan studied Physics at University College London before obtaining his Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics from the University of Cambridge. He joined Rafal Bogacz's Group in 2015, where he now works on computational methods to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of deep brain stimulation (DBS). His research focusses on developing methods of closed-loop DBS to treat people with Parkinson's disease or Essential Tremor. Central to this is the development of mathematical models that can accurately predict the brain's response to electrical stimulation.
