Assistant Professor

Joined Feb 2016

I am a physical therapist with a PhD in Neuroscience. I have worked clinically in both private practice and hospital environments before moving to the United States to study computational neuroscience at Harvard Medical School and MIT. I then accepted a post-doctoral fellowship at New York University, designing prostheses for Brain Machine Interface devices. I am currently an Assistant Professor of Rehabilitation Medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College, and the Director of Telemedicine and Virtual Rehabilitation at Burke Medical Research Institute. In this position, I work to develop low-cost and accessible healthcare solutions for individuals in need of better healthcare accessibility. I consult for Red Bull High Performance, using state-of-the-art technology to monitor and enhance athlete performance. Finally, I am also the “Chief Mad Scientist” of Not Impossible Labs, a group that crowd-sources accessible technological solutions for high-impact humanitarian problems.
