Hello! I am a graduating medical student at Stanford & incoming surgery resident at Duke. I have a background in biomedical engineering and physics. Much of my research has focused on developing technologies for pediatric neurological disorders of movement. I have built several assistive devices for children with cerebral palsy, including exoskeletons, wearable sensors, and virtual reality environments. I am passionate about building electronics, writing code, and working with patients. In my free time, I like to walk dogs & play Runescape.
