About

Nice to meet you! I’m a medical student at Stanford University aiming to improve lives through healthcare and life sciences. I’m currently working to transform the care of treatment-resistant mental health conditions as the co-founder of Osmind.

I previously co-founded/led 3 nonprofits, which are all active and successful – immersive technologies to improve pediatric healthcare in 30+ hospitals and nearly 10 countries; high school STEM research program offering a state-of-the-art laboratory with $2M+ research equipment and $250k+ annual revenue; and free community health screenings for underserved populations in Philadelphia.

Outside of work, I enjoy watching Warriors basketball, running, reading, listening to music (ranging from hip-hop to mandopop to classical), and meeting new people.
