I am passionate about the brain and human psychology. As an undergraduate I graduated with a 3.8 GPA with a degree in neuroscience and philosophy. Recently, I completed a masters degree in cognitive neuroscience from University College London with a distinction (top mark). I am currently a full-time researcher at Johns Hopkins in the division of cognitive neuroscience. I have several publications in psychology/neuroscience and philosophy journals.
I have several years of experience with teaching high school and undergraduate students. As an undergraduate, I developed a full semester course on consciousness and mind, which I instructed to undergraduate juniors and seniors. I published the content of this course into the Journal of Undergraduate Neuroscience Education. As a master's student in London, I received a part-time teaching job instructing high school students in psychology, philosophy, and neuroscience. In an anonymous feedback form, the students commented:
"The tutor was very good. He made people understand confusing things easily."
"The tutor was great. He structured the session in a way that will help everyone to understand and to wrap their head around the different ideas/theories."
I also have experience with public speaking: I was the student body president at my university were public speaking was a daily occurrence. Likewise, I completed a semester course in public speaking.
