Curriculum Vitae:



I am an Assistant Professor at the UCSF Neurology department where I focus my research on exploring the neural correlates of emotional states. In my work, I use neuroimaging and neurophysiological techniques to assess how the brain and the autonomic nervous system dynamically interact to support human emotions and social behavior. I then apply this fundamental knowledge to understand how these systems are changed in older adults and impacted by neuropsychiatric diseases. Recently, I started investigating how novel pharmacological interventions, based on psychedelic substances, can impact these neural systems supporting social-emotional functions. Previously, as a postdoctoral scholar at UCSF and graduate student at the Technical University of Munich, I used neuroimaging techniques to explore brain changes in neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease and frontotemporal dementia.
