Romesh is a postdoctoral researcher at the Oxford Centre for Human Brain Activity (OHBA), supervised by Prof. Mark Woolrich.
Romesh's research focuses on biophysical modelling at the intersection between theory and experiments. Romesh is currently using large-scale neuronal network models with anatomically-based connections to study the relationship between anatomical and functional connectivity, and how neuronal plasticity may relate to transient dynamics. Romesh is particularly interested in using data to test and validate biophysical models, and is currently focusing on MEG to enable model validation on short timescales.
Romesh completed his BSc (Hons) in Physics at the University of Sydney, Australia, followed by a PhD in Physics under the supervision of Prof. Peter Robinson. Romesh then worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the at the University of Sydney prior to joining OHBA. Romesh's previous research focused on EEG in sleep, using neural field theory to relate the physical structure of the brain to whole-brain activity over the sleep-wake cycle.
