About

Asking the Right Questions.

Profile Picture

Asking the right questions is the key to solve any problem -- from understanding the human brain to developing strategies for market expansion. As a neuroscientist and a consultant, I identify questions to explore, strategize steps to answer them, and deliver results.

I am Ph.D. Candidate in the Psychology & Neuroscience Program at Princeton University and I am fully funded by the National Science Foundation. I love to solve interesting problems, and I found my passion for consulting while working with the Princeton University Strategy Group. I am currently serving as the President of the Princeton University Consulting Club. I look forward to starting my career in consulting in summer 2022.
