Research Interests: I am an undergraduate at Duke University pursuing degrees in neurobiology and philosophy, with plans to obtain a PhD in cognitive neuroscience. I am particularly interested in investigating altered states of consciousness such as meditation, psychedelic use and dreaming, and their potential both to improve an individual’s emotional wellbeing and to inform underlying questions about the neural basis of consciousness and the self.

Personal Interests: Chess enthusiast, basketball fanatic, lover of fiction novels and short story writing.
