About

MY BACKGROUND

I’ve had a passion for science and research since I was a child, and my natural curiosity and drive to help others has led me to pursue a scientific career in neuroscience. I enjoy delving into new fields of research and using my interdisciplinary skillset. My advocacy is a core component of my work. Science, healthcare, and education should be free and accessible to everyone and my work directly reflects this ideal.
