About Me

I am currently a third-year PhD student at Stanford University studying mechanical engineering. After completing dual degrees in music from Emory University and mechanical engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology, I continued on to a masters at Georgia Tech where I worked in human neurophysiology. In 2014, I was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship and a Swiss Government Excellence Scholarship to work in the Biorobotics Lab at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL). There I helped design and conduct various experiments in human motor control and helped develop various mathematical models to explain the behaviors we observed. At Stanford, I am continuing this work to examine what goes wrong in individuals that suffer from stroke and how we can help to rehabilitate them.
