I am a T32 research fellow and research track resident in the Stanford Adult Psychiatry Residency program. I completed my MD-PhD at Baylor College of Medicine, studying learning-associated synaptic plasticity in a model of syndromic autism with in vivo 2-photon imaging. I completed a post-doctoral fellowship at Harvard Medical School, Brigham and Women's Hospital, studying changes in neuronal population activity in syndromic autism with 2-photon genetically encoded calcium indicator imaging. I am currently developing methods to study the regulation of synaptic plasticity by affective state and mindful presence, using neuronavigated transcranial magnetic stimulation, transcranial ultrasound stimulation, and EEG steady-state visual-evoked potentials. I work closely with the labs of Anthony Norcia, Kim Butts Pauly, and Nolan Williams. My clinical interests include integrated psychodynamic- and mindfulness-based approaches, psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy, and neuromodulation-assisted psychotherapy.
