I am a student in the Medical Scientist Training Program at UCLA. My research interests include areas of neuroscience, psychiatry, pharmacology, synaptic transmission, neuromodulation, and monoamine signalling.

I enjoy golf, music, playing the guitar, photography, art, the Los Angeles Lakers, street food, fine dining, and spending time with my family and friends in Southern California.
