Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering
Dr. Jayant earned his bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the National Institute of Technology (NIT), India, and his master’s and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Cornell University, New York. Before joining Purdue, he was a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Columbia University, a research collaborator at ARCES at the University of Bologna, Italy, and a research assistant at Indian Institute of Sciences, India.
Dr. Jayant is interested in bridging nanoscience and neuroscience. He is developing nanoprobes and integrated electronic systems to use in conjunction with two-photon microscopy and electrophysiology to study how fundamental biophysical features of neurons, including synaptic and dendritic mechanisms, influence neural circuit computation in vitro and in vivo.
