Bad Brains, Watcha Going to Do? Using Neuroscience to Shape Morality

Half German and Indian, I grew up in Los Angeles and Germany speaking German, Spanish, and English. I am committed to developing the skill sets for a career that lies at the intersection of bioethics, biostatistics, reproductive health, and teaching..Growing up in a multi-cultural environment, I engaged with a diverse array of audiences, each with their own values and ideas around which they structured their lives. This early exposure to human nature’s diversity nurtured my curiosity about the principles by which we do and should conduct ourselves. This curiosity underpins my bioethics interest today.
