I was born and raised near Los Angeles, California. I am a senior at MIT majoring in Brain and Cognitive Sciences with a concentration in Anthropology. I work as an EMT on the MIT EMS ambulance service, am a resident director for MedLinks, and a research assistant in the Kanwisher Laboratory. I have a published paper in the Journal of Vision, and am a leader in other campus organizations. I am also a former co-captain on the MIT NCAA Varsity Men’s Water Polo Team. Finally, I believe in a positive relationship between work and play.
