Bio:

Dr. Madhav is an engineer and roboticist turned neuroscientist who joins UBC from Johns Hopkins University (JHU) where he earned his graduate degree in Mechanical Engineering and Robotics. He then became an Assistant Research Scientist at JHU under the mentorship of Dr. James Knierim and Dr. Noah Cowan. His research focused on quantifying aspects of spatial navigation in rats by recording place cells and head direction cells, leading to the development of a custom augmented reality system that resulted in the discovery of the recalibration of the hippocampal path integrator by visual landmarks.
