Cognition to me is

An attempt to understand the human mind through the lenses of Artificial Intelligence, Neuroscience, Psychology, Anthropology, Philosophy, and Linguistics.

I want to study Cognitive Science because

I wish to understand the intricacies of our mind and apply my knowledge to the systems that aim to bridge the existing gap between brain and behaviour. I aspire to contribute in the development of systems (inclusive of physical, digital, cyber-physical, and even social) that are most compatible with our cognitive processes.

Any specific domain of interest in Cognitive Science

Cognitive Neuroscience, Human-Computer Interaction and Cyber-Physical Systems, Cognitive Economics, Neuromarketing

In future I see Cognitive Science

enabling people to experience seamlessness in their interactions with the surroundings. There would be products optimally designed to be tailor-fit with the users’ needs and requirements, services that enhance the user experience to the highest level, and innovations that are increasingly guided by the advancements in the field of cognitive science.

Research interests or other future plans

Cognitive Neuroscience, Human-Computer Interaction and Cyber-Physical Systems, Cognitive Economics, Neuromarketing

In my leisure time, I love to

play outdoor games, explore new places, and do some readings that interest me.
