ANOUSHKA D. SHAHANE
I am a dual-degree PhD candidate at Rice University studying Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience and Behavioral Medicine and proud alum of Tufts University '15.
Previously, I worked with Drs. Mahzarin Banaji (Harvard), Jason Mitchell (Harvard), Diana Tamir (Princeton), and Heather Urry (Tufts).
I also was an Associate Consultant at Putnam Associates (ranked as a top boutique consulting firm in North America by Vault) and the bioinformatics and computational chemistry intern at Cubist Pharmaceuticals.
I am a recipient of the Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (National Institute of Health) Fellowship (F31) and the Rice University 2020 Vaughn Fellowship. I study neurobiological and immunological mechanisms of affective processes and how they relate to cardiovascular disease among highly-stressed populations.
When I'm not doing research or classwork, you can probably find me in the ballet studio, playing piano, or drinking sugar with a side of coffee.
