currently: I am currently pursuing a PhD in Neuroscience at Stanford University. I am a member of Krishna Shenoy's Neural Prosthetics Systems lab, where I am investigating the neural basis of movement control via high-dimensional multielectrode array recordings and optogenetic stimulation.

previously:In June 2009, I graduated from Princeton University with a B.S.E. in Electrical Engineering and certificates in Neuroscience, Applied and Computational Mathematics, Robotics and Intelligent Systems, and Computer Science. My undergraduate research was advised by Carlos Brody and Sebastian Seung. I also helped to develop Memrise, an early stage startup that aims to transform the way in which people learn languages, facts, and relationships.

interests: I am broadly interested in computational, systems, and theoretical approaches to neuroscience, artificial intelligence, machine learning, computer vision, brain-computer interfaces, entrepreneurship, web development, and design.
