BioI am a T32 research fellow and research track resident in the Stanford Adult Psychiatry Residency program. During my MD-PhD (Baylor College of Medicine) and postdoc (Harvard Medical School) I studied learning-associated synaptic plasticity and sensory processing in a model of syndromic autism with in vivo 2-photon imaging. I am currently developing methods to study the regulation of synaptic plasticity by attention, affective state and mindful presence, using neuronavigated transcranial magnetic stimulation, transcranial ultrasound stimulation, and EEG steady-state visual-evoked potentials. I won the 2022 Brain Behavior Research Foundation Young Investigator Award to develop in-human applications of ultrasound stimulation in the fear regulation circuit. I am also co-leading the Wellcome LEAP multisite rTMS clinical trial for anhedonic depression in the Stanford Brain Stimulation Lab. I work closely with mentors Anthony Norcia, Kim Butts Pauly, and Nolan Williams on these projects. My clinical interests include integrated psychodynamic- and mindfulness-based approaches, psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy, and neuromodulation-assisted psychotherapy. I am an experienced mindfulness meditation practitioner with more than a year of silent retreat experience.
