I received my MA in Linguistics from the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), India. At DCAL, I am working as a research student under the supervision of Professor Bencie Woll.
My research interests include linguistic aphasiology, sign language and the brain; especially sign language aphasia. I am interested in the analysis of sign language breakdown following localized brain damage in deaf signers, and what this spells for the neural oraganisation of language in our brain.
My PhD projects looks at handedness descrepancies in normal and stroke affected deaf signers.
