I’m a cognitive neuroscientist investigating how our brains process rewarding social information and how this type of social information influences our decisions. My recent experiments have focused on social media use, relationships, and advice taking. Ultimately, with the knowledge gained by my research, I hope to contribute to a better understanding of socially motivated human behavior.

I conduct my research as an assistant professor in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University. My Ph.D. is from Columbia University in New York, and my B.S. is from the University of California at Los Angeles. Recently, I was a postdoctoral research scientist at Freie Universität Berlin, and I also taught courses at the Berlin School of Mind and Brain.

I am currently searching for Postdocs, Graduate Students, and Undergrads to conduct research in my lab at Michigan State University. If you're interested, please send me an email at darmeshi(at)gmail.com.
