About: mosvey

I finished my Masters in Biochemistry from University of Kashmir, in Jammu and Kashmir, India. In a workshop entitled “Developmental neuroscience” I had my first (or important) exposure to neuroscience. There I met Veronica Rodrigues who I continued to work with at the National Centre for Biological Sciences, Bangalore. Here I began to pursue my interest in understanding the role of glial cells in Drosophila olfactory lobe development and function. For my PhD, I was the recipient of the Max Plank International Fellowship award. This allowed me to study gliogenesis in the laboratory of Christian Klaembt in Muenster, Germany. My work focused on identifying new Septate junction molecules in Sub-perineurial glial cells and studying their role in Blood Brain Barrier formation in Drosophila. Through the OIST Developmental Neurobiology course I met my current mentor, HHMI investigator Chris Doe at UO in Eugene. We are interested in understanding how larval Type II neuroblasts generate amazing diversity of neurons and glial cells in the adult fly brain. How these cells integrate into functional circuits in the central complex that modulates complex behaviors. I am also involved in various scientific outreach programs like TREND in Africa. I love to travel, run and hike.
