I hope to improve care for people with psychiatric conditions ❤️‍🩹🧠

I am a Bioengineering PhD student at Stanford, interested in developing better treatments for severe psychiatric conditions, such as major depression and addiction. I think part of the solution lies in better understanding how the brain and body give rise to these conditions, and targeting these proximal causes. To this end, I'm interested in systems neuroscience and reverse translation across species, computational psychiatry, and spatially and temporally targeted treatment approaches (such as neural interfaces).

I'm grateful to be funded by the Knight-Hennessy Fellowship. I previously received a BS in Physics at Yale, and have worked on systems neuroscience in small brains and closed-loop neuromodulation for treatment-resistant depression.
