Dr Nima Mirkhani
Research Member of Common Room
MRC Brain Network Dynamics Unit
Nima is a postdoctoral researcher at the MRC Brain Network Dynamics Unit, University of Oxford. His research, under the supervision of Prof. Rafal Bogacz, focuses on exploring the effects of neurostimulation in neurological and psychiatric disorders using computational models. Specifically, he is developing mathematical models to optimize the suppression of pathological oscillations in disorders like Parkinson’s disease. Additionally, Nima is interested in studying altered perceptual inference in psychiatric conditions, particularly within the context of autism. Before joining Oxford, he completed his PhD in health sciences and technology at ETH Zurich, followed by a short postdoc where he investigated novel selective drug delivery strategies in cancer using bacteria as living microrobots.
