Curriculum Vitae

In January 2012, I started as an assistant professor in the Department of Applied Physics at Stanford University, with courtesy appointments in Neurobiology and Electrical Engineering.

Here are links to my applied physics and school of medicine websites.

Before joining Stanford, I was a fellow of the Sloan-Swartz Center for Theoretical Neurobiology in the Keck Center at UCSF. I was also supported by a career award from the Burroughs Wellcome Fund Interfaces in Science Program.

As a postdoctoral fellow, I also enjoyed extended stays at several centers and institutions and, in addition to UCSF, I am especially grateful to:

Center for Brain Science Harvard University
Center for Theoretical Neuroscience Columbia University
Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit University College London
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics UC Santa Barbara
Laboratory for Mathematical Neuroscience Riken Brain Science Institute
Movement Control Laboratory UC San Diego
Neurophysics Laboratory Hebrew University of Jerusalem
Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience UC Berkeley

Before joining UCSF I did my PhD in string theory with Petr Horava in the Berkeley Center for Theoretical Physics and the Theory Group at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

And before this sojourn in the world of strings, I spent my time as an undergrad at MIT studying electrical engineering and computer science (EECS), mathematics and physics.
