I am the founder and CEO of Mind Blossom. I received my PhD from Emory University and finished a short Post-doctoral Fellowship at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital. Inspired by my experiences, I left academia with the purpose of creating tangible changes to mental healthcare through technology and psychoeducation. I first joined the multimodal biosensors software company iMotions, where I led the strategic development of a wearable mobile biosensor platform as well as the integration of voice analysis into their multimodal biometric research platform. I now serve as a consultant for companies, often at the startup stage, on the integration of biosensors and AI in mental health tech as well as an advisor to both companies and graduate-level students. I am an expert on mental health and illness and regularly lead lectures for high school, college and graduate students. I have been featured on various webinars and podcasts and am a writer at Psychology Today.
