Welcome to my homepage!
I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at the University of California in San Francisco (UCSF). I hold my degrees in Physics (PhD), Electrical Engineering (MSc and BSc), and Psychology (BSc). Professionally I focus on studying adolescent brain development and mental health. My other goals in life include sharing my passion for science and critical thinking, and helping people have more joy in their lives. On this website I will share some of my interests outside of academia. In particular, you are welcome to subscribe to my Gratitude Newsletter if you'd like to connect, stay in touch, and hopefully have a positive message arrive to your email box once a month or so. I have also published a novella titled "Just City," which I hope you will check out.
