"I am a Clinical Assistant Professor at Stanford as part of the new Clinical and Translational Neurosciences Initiative. I hold a Ph.D. in Biomedical Informatics from Stanford School of Medicine. I also received a Certificate in Entrepreneurship from the Graduate School of Business at Stanford. My interdisciplinary research focuses on finding the brain mechanisms underlying atypical behavior and cognitive function in mental illness, using advance human brain imaging techniques, systems-neuroscience based models and novel artificial intelligence-based methods. The ultimate goal of my research is to develop better diagnosis and more effective treatments for mental illness, and more broadly, advance precision mental health. 

"My work has been published in over fifty high-profile widely-cited research articles, and highlighted in national as well as international media including CNN, Time and Le Monde. Discover magazine named one of my works among the top 100 discoveries of the year. I love teaching and have taught several courses for high-school students as well as undergraduate and graduate students. I have also mentored more than 20 high-school students and undergraduates, many of whom have gone on to top schools and some of whom have gone on to academic positions at distinguished research institutions."
