Bijurika earned her undergraduate degree in Electronics and Communications Engineering in India, in 2012. She came to the US to pursue graduate studies in 2013, and obtained an MS in Electrical Engineering (2015) from University of Florida (UF), Gainesville. It was during her MS years that she got interested in computational neuroscience and neuroinformatics while working in Dr. Mingzhou Ding's lab. Later, under the mentorship of Dr. Ding, Bijurika earned her PhD in Biomedical Engineering in 2019, from UF. Her dissertation was on 'Information Flow in Neural Circuits' where she explored causal interactions between neuronal circuits and proposed new methods for effectively processing neural signals. Upon finishing her PhD, Bijurika joined Neuroscape at University of California, San Francisco to obtain her postdoctoral training on cognitive neuroscience. At Neuroscape, Bijurika has explored rhythm training as a cognitive intervention in older adults. She is currently involved in multiple multi-modal biosensing projects, exploring brainstates and emotion.
Outside of work, Bijurika enjoys reading novels, strength training with her trainer and practicing Indian classical vocal music.
