I am currently pursuing my MD/PhD at the University of Washington, and am finishing the final two years of medical school. I finished my PhD in bioengineering in June of 2019 in the laboratories of Dr. Jeffrey Ojemann in the department of Neurosurgery and Dr. Rajesh Rao from the department of Computer Science and Engineering. My PhD research work focused on engineering direct electrical stimulation of human sensorimotor cortex. To do this, I worked with patients that are implanted with electrodes in their brains for clinical care of epilepsy and movement disorders such as Parkinson’s and Essential Tremor. I received bachelor’s and master’s degrees in biomedical engineering from the University of Michigan. During my graduate training, I was a joint fellow of UWIN and the Big Data for Genomics & Neuroscience (BDGN) Training Grant, and an Achievement Rewards for College Scientists (ARCS) scholar. I seek to continue to explore the interface between medicine and engineering, and am interested in pursuing future training as a neurosurgeon.
