Solve challenging problems with global impacts
Do good for a better world
I am a passionate problem solver with broad interests spanning both humanities and technology. Outside of work, I like to read, cycle, meditate, swim, examine life (of mine and of others), follow what I can on various topics (investing, politics, macroeconomics, law, etc.), and enjoy music. I enjoy working with people to solve difficult problems and learning about how different organizations, in particular businesses, grow and operate.
Currently, I'm a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. With my advisor Steve Flavell, I investigate the neural circuits behind behavior in C. elegans using cutting-edge optical and genetic tools.
Before grad school, I spent a year doing biomedical optics and systems neuroscience research at the Rowland Institute at Harvard. Prior to that, I was at Cornell, where I learned how to solve difficult problems, primarily in biological context (Biological Engineering).
