Varun is currently working as a Research Assistant in the Drosophila Connectomics group at the Department of Zoology. He is currently involved in mapping the connections in the female Drosophila melanogaster brain using EM (Electron Microscopy) connectomics data. 

Before moving to Cambridge, Varun completed his Masters in Neuroscience from the University of St Andrews under Dr. Stefan Pulver where he studied the effect of dopaminergic modulation in locomotor central pattern generating networks in larval Drosophila. He did his Bachelors in Science (Physics), from St Xavier's College (Autonomous), Mumbai, India.
