About

Welcome to Human Biology! The Core was one of the most formative intellectual experiences I had at Stanford. I double-majored in Human Biology and Comparative Literature, and my HumBio concentration was in Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience. Although I pursued a B.S. degree, the flexibility of the major allowed me to explore the brain from social, philosophical, psychological, and literary perspectives in addition to gaining a rigorous foundation in biology and computational methodologies. As an undergrad, I worked as a counselor at the SHPRC and BRIDGE, conducted neuroscience research on the impact of race/ethnicity on face recognition, studied philosophy and literature abroad at Oxford, and was an editor for STATIC, a progressive publication devoted to creative resistance to the norm. In my free time, I teach yoga, go to concerts, write, and play classical piano. I can’t wait to get to know you all!
