Elvisha Dhamala, PhD
I’m a computational neuroscientist studying neurobiological factors underlying psychiatric illness as a postdoctoral fellow in the Holmes Lab at Yale University. I earned my BSc in Neuroscience in 2017 from McGill University, and my PhD in Neuroscience from Weill Cornell Medicine in 2021 in the CoCo (Computational Connectomics) Lab.
My scientific work integrates my expertise in neuroimaging, connectomics, and machine learning to quantify sex-specific neurobiological risk factors for psychiatric illnesses during development.
Apart from my research, I’m actively involved in educational outreach and community leadership. In my free time, I enjoy travelling, hiking, kayaking, reading, wine tasting, and cooking.
