Thanks for your interest. I am an anesthesiologist and neuroscientist educated at Harvard (A.B. Biology), UCSD/Salk Institute (MD, PhD in Neuroscience), UCSF (Anesthesiology residency), and Stanford (post-doctoral work in optogenetics, Deisseroth lab). I was board certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology in 2008, and have served on the Stanford Anesthesiology faculty ever since. My principal interests are in understanding neural mechanisms that maintain consciousness, and levels of sleep and wakefulness. I have built a research program at Stanford which investigates this problem by measuring the EEG (electroencephalogram) in patients undergoing anesthesia. I can measure their level consciousness, which informs patient safety and allows me to understand the role anesthetics play in the human brain. I have also launched a precision medicine initiative at Stanford using genomics, big data, and phenotyping to understand the contribution of environmental versus genetic determina...
