Sneha Sheth

My curiosity about the nature of my mind was first honed during my adolescent years on the pristine hilltop of Sahyadri School. After completing my undergraduate degree in cognitive systems at UBC, I spent my initial years of grad school in Dr. Chris Shaw’s lab, researching the neurotoxic effects of aluminium vaccine adjuvants. In pursuit of finding convergence between my worlds of introspection and experimentation, I will be spending the remaining years of my PhD in Kalina’s lab, exploring the neural basis of meta-awareness, spontaneous thought, and modes of the self. When my meta-cognitive resources aren’t engaged, I indulge in the pleasures of singing or listening to my favourite Indian classical ragas.
