My STEM interests include computational neuroscience, robotics, and nanotechnology. I am currently doing research on how deep neural networks work and how they can be applied to solve scientific problems. I plan to get a PhD in Computational Neuroscience in order to learn how computational methods can be used to study the brain. In the future I would like to continue doing research whether it be in academia or industry.

I currently work at the Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience.


“NERDS has been crucial in helping me change tracks from premed to pre-graduate school. I now have a better understanding of what my genuine interests are and feel free to actively engage in pushing the boundaries of science. I want to continue doing research in areas related to neuroscience and computer science.”
