I'm a postdoctoral fellow in the Psychiatric and Neurodevelopmental Genetics Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. I have a PhD in Experimental Psychopathology from Harvard University and a BA in Molecular and Cell Biology from UC Berkeley.
I am interested in how differences in our genes, environments, and changes across the lifespan shape the way we think and how we interact with the world around us. I am particularly interested in how social abilities are distinct from other cognitive abilities, giving clues to how our brains develop and why some people are more vulnerable to developing mental disorders.
Finally, I believe in putting participants (and patients) at the center of research methods. I am Founder and Director of TestMyBrain.org, where I have tested over 1.3 million from all over the world since 2008.
