I am a board-certified psychiatrist and Advanced MD Fellow within the Sierra-Pacific Mental Illness Research, Education, and Clinical Center (MIRECC) at the Veteran Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System (VAPAHCS). I am also affiliated as a postdoctoral scholar within the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University with Leanne Williams, PhD as primary mentor. My general interests are in the implementation of experimental/novel therapeutics and precision approaches to improve outcomes in difficult-to-treat depression. In my developing research program, I focus on circuit-based paradigms in negative valence and social process domains, functional magnetic resonance imaging, and neuromodulation. Clinically, I operate in a primarily interventional space.
