Eshan Nirody

Ph.D. student

Eshan graduated from UC Berkeley with a BA in Molecular & Cell Biology. He completed an undergraduate research apprenticeship in the lab of Dr. Robert Dudley helping to quantify the porosity of cortical bone in egg-laying female and male zebra finches. He then went on to complete a Masters in Medical Sciences at Boston University.

Eshan is currently a PhD student in Professor Doug Altshuler's lab where he is studying visual pathways involved in the processing of global visual motion using zebra finches as the model organism. In particular, he is interested in functionally mapping the parallel projections emerging from certain retinorecipient visual regions to their target motor regions in the cerebellum.
