Arnav Raha

Rotation Student

Arnav Raha is a rotating student in the Gadagkar Lab. He graduated from the University of California, Berkeley in 2021 with a degree in Bioengineering and a minor in Computer Science. At Berkeley he worked on the neural basis of social cognition in Egyptian fruit bats with Wujie Zhang in the Yartsev Lab; they found that when bats interact with each other, activity in their frontal lobes is highly correlated with each other. He then worked in the Gadagkar Lab as a research assistant for two years investigating vocal turn-taking in female zebra finches. Going forward, Arnav is interested in how language and vocal communication are processed in the brains of humans and other animals.
