I am currently a PhD student in the Bioengineering Department at Stanford University, where I work in the Neuromuscular Biomechanics Laboratory, and am advised by Scott Delp. My graduate research focuses on using optogenetics to study peripheral nervous system pathology. Most of my work centers on improving our understanding of pain circuitry, though I have also worked in the past on using optogenetics to perturb motor function.
My undergraduate training was at Johns Hopkins University, from which I graduated in 2010 with a degree in Biomedical Engineering. During that time, I worked at the Neuroengineering & Biomedical Instrumentation Laboratory where I was advised by Nitish Thakor, Angelo All, and Anil Maybhate.
