Ph.D. candidate, UC Berkeley, Vision Science/Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience
B.S. Neuroscience and Electrical Engineering, Stanford University

"I studied Neuroscience and Electrical Engineering for my bachelors at Stanford University. As an undergraduate, I conducted research primarily in brain imaging, co-publishing several papers on the neural circuits underlying visual attention. During this time, I would also intern at Germany's Fraunhofer Institute for Biomedical Technology to develop biosensors for intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring. Today, I am pursuing my PhD at UC Berkeley, where my research investigates computational models of vision for neuroscience discovery and AI."
