Dr. Srivatsun Sadagopan is an assistant professor in the Department of Neurobiology, with secondary appointments in Bioengineering and Communication Sciences and Disorders. His research program has two complementary aims: 1) To understand how complex sounds, especially communication sounds such as animal vocalizations, are processed by the central auditory pathway, and 2) To gain insight into the mechanistic bases of EEG-scale auditory responses in humans using animal models. He uses a highly interdisciplinary approach, leveraging computational, behavioral, and electrophysiological methods to address these questions.
Dr. Sadagopan was awarded the 2019 Geraldine Fox Young Investigator award by the Association for Research in Otolaryngology. He received his PhD from the Department of Neuroscience at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, followed by postdoctoral training at Northwestern University and The Rockefeller University.
