About Shivam Kaushik

Shivam graduated from Maharshi Dayanand University in India with a bachelor’s degree. Before joining the NeuroTargets Fly Lab, he conducted research on the role of neural circuits in memory formation using Drosophila as experimental system. He authored three papers and contributed to several book chapters in this area. He is currently assisting in the development of several behavioral platforms as well as in the characterization of new therapeutic targets for neurodegenerative diseases. In his free time, Shivam enjoys playing and watching basketball and badminton, which helps him find balance and inspiration.
