Current research areas of interest:
I am working on neuroimaging studies with the traumatic brain injury group at UTSW this summer. I hope to learn techniques for brain imaging analysis and to expand upon my interest in neurology and clinical research.
Current professional trajectory:
I am currently interested in neurology, and hope to explore that field further in the coming years. In the future, I hope to combine my interests in technological innovation and patient care to practice medicine and conduct research in an academic institution.
Personal words of wisdom:
Although it’s useful and productive to narrow your focus, it’s also valuable to explore different areas early on before making a commitment.
