Supriya Bhavnani

I work as a Research Scientist with the Public Health Foundation of India and Sangath. I am a neuroscientist with a PhD in Genetics from the University of Leicester, UK. I have been awarded the prestigious Innovation in Science Pursuit for Inspired Research (INSPIRE) award and Innovative Young Biotechnologist Award (IYBA) from the Government of India. Since 2015, I have been part of a team of clinicians and neuroscientists working with Prof Vikram Patel to put together a translational neuroscience network comprising an interdisciplinary team of clinicians, public health researchers, neuroscientists and computer scientists focused on developing scalable tools for assessment of cognitive development in young children. I am actively involved in the three projects that are being executed by the team. I am coordinating all Braintools activities in the India site which include a) data collection on the toolkit, b) assessment of its acceptability and feasibility and c) facilitating interactions between Babybrains CEO and the community.
