I did my Masters in Psychology and have been trained in providing psychological services like Psychological assessment, Play Therapy and Parent counseling. I went on to join PhD in Cognitive Science at IIT Gandhinagar and ever since I have dedicated myself in the pursuit of understanding Perception and Emotion and ultimately the nature of the human mind.
