Sumedha Nalluru

Research Student

Sumedha Nalluru graduated from King’s College London with a BSc in Neuroscience, in 2021, where she completed a computational psychiatry research project investigating top-down and bottom-up processes in psychosis with Professor Rosalyn Moran. 

Sumedha completed her MSc in Neuroscience at Oxford, in 2022. She did one of her rotation projects with Professor Kevin Talbot investigating the role of microglia in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. She did her second project with Dr MaryAnn Noonan where she looked into capturing ecologically relevant features of learning and decision making to understand adolescent psychiatric conditions. 

Following her MSc, Sumedha worked as a research assistant in the BNDU in 2023, co-supervised by Dr Helen Barron and Professor Jill O’Reilly at the Department of Experimental Psychology. During this time, she worked on a targeted memory reactivation human behaviour study.

In 2023, Sumedha joined the Barron group full-time as a DPhil student. She is investigating neural computations in learning and memory, in healthy and psychosis conditions, using a combination of human neuroimaging, brain stimulation, and computational modelling.
