Bio Allen was born and raised in Irvine, California. He completed his undergraduate training at University of California, San Diego as part of the combined-degree Medical Scholars Program with a major in Economics. He then left California to attend Harvard Medical School where he earned his MD in 2014. His research interests include expanding indications for deep brain stimulation and neuromodulation, technology-driven minimally-invasive approaches to cranial and spinal neurosurgery, and quality improvement initiatives within clinical neurosurgery. In the Halpern Lab, Allen is utilizing advanced functional imaging (fMRI, DTI) to study the effects of functional neurosurgery and exploring the role of neuromodulation in addiction, OCD, and obesity in both animal models and humans. He has also completed an enfolded fellowship in complex spine surgery and has a clinical interest in spinal deformity surgery via both minimally invasive and open approaches.
