Assistant Professor of Psychology Affiliation: NYU Abu Dhabi
Education: BA Yale University; PhD University of Pennsylvania
Research Areas: short-term memory, working memory
Kartik’s overarching research aim is to understand the neurobiological mechanisms that support the ability to form and carry out goals. His work focuses on the dynamic and flexible neural coding of short-term memory representations as well as the networks involved in keeping memory representations robust to interference. To study these phenomena, Kartik employs a multimodal approach that includes methods such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), human electrophysiology, and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). Most recently, as a postdoc at the University Of California, his research focused on probing the representational architecture of working memory using Multivariate neuroimaging analyses.
Kartik received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Yale University and in 2009 received a PhD in Neuroscience from the University of Pennsylvania.
