Artist Bio

My work as a multimedia storyteller is influenced by a degree in neuroscience, a fellowship to pursue independent medical anthropological research in Morocco, Cambodia, and Madagascar, and professional experience at a New York City health technology startup. My documentary projects seek to bridge academic, scientific, and clinical worlds with the public sphere, engaging with complex issues at the intersection of neuroscience, global health, medical anthropology, cultural psychiatry, neuroethics, and science and technology studies.
