I'm a neuroscientist by training and currently a third-year medical student at Stanford University. I use intracranial electrical stimulation (neuromodulation) of the human brain to research cognition and emotion in epilepsy patients.

Before that, I did my Masters and PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience with Kalina Christoff at the University of British Columbia, in beautiful Vancouver, Canada. My graduate research focused on the neuroscience of meditation and mind-wandering. And before that, I spent a good while in Asia studying meditation and volunteering with Tibetan monks and refugees.

I've worked, studied, vagabonded, and volunteered in 82 countries and counting. I'm happiest outdoors or with a book in my hands - ideally, both at the same time.
