Dr. Tulika Nandi

Postdoctoral Scientist

Dr. Tulika Nandi obtained her undergraduate degree in Physiotherapy from Manipal University, India. Tulika subsequently obtained a Masters in Biokinesiology from the University of Southern California (USC), USA. She conducted her Ph.D. research on neural control of standing balance, partly at USC and partly at the University of Groningen, Netherlands.

Tulika's research aims to understand the neurophysiological and behavioural effects of non-invasive brain stimulation, and to use brain stimulation as a tool to answer questions about motor control. She is currently part of a team working to develop non-invasive ultrasound stimulation for deep brain structures. She is also working on other projects that complement brain stimulation with imaging to allow more comprehensive study of the motor system.
