Sukant Khurana is an artist, scientist, writer, and futurist.
Sukant was trained in cellular neurophysiology and computational neuroscience in Austin Texas, then after Ph.D., just few meters away from doctoral lab, worked on learning, memory, and alcoholism. He then explored how to use artificial intelligence in neuroscience and drug discovery in Long Island. Following few accidents, he landed in India, where despite a horrible academic climate, filled with ideological politicking, he innovated in several areas of science and technology, including neuroscience. His mother, who passed away due to depression, which was made worse by repeated attacks on Sukant for his anti-corruption work, has strengthened his resolve to make this world a better place. Among other things, Sukant integrates art with science and technology to achieve his goals.
He has been an artist from much before he was a scientist, with minor accolades coming from competitions but the real ones coming from his mother refusing to throw away a three year old’s scribbles, encouraging “born talent” of her firstborn.
This page primarily explores intersection of neuroscience and art of Sukant.
