Welcome to my journey!


Hey! I'm a curious 16 year old using science and cutting edge technology to solve some of the world's biggest problems. I'm on a mission to solve mental illness by leveraging my passion for mental health advocacy, artificial intelligence, neurotechnology and the brain. I believe that unraveling the complexities of the brain is utterly necessary as technology rapidly advances. I have consulted for companies like Techstars and Kidogo, love design and enjoy meeting new people!

I'm a part of The Knowledge Society, an innovation incubator that is helping me build my toolbox so that I can impact billions. I have developed machine learning models that diagnose ADHD and schizophrenia using fMRI data, am researching the role of the gut microbiota in depression, and much more! Two years ago, I conducted a nationally award-winning research project at Simmons University on how global warming is affecting honeybees, presented in Sweden.
