After receiving my PhD in natural products and organic chemistry, I was drawn to industries that challenged the norm. I have worked in various fields of drug discovery from neglected and tropical diseases to antibiotics to psychoactives, all of which are understudied fields with many drug discovery challenges. My father's diagnosis with a rare form of dementia and my family's struggle with addiction catalyzed my interest in neurological conditions and continues to motivate me today. Our goal at Psilera is to accelerate research of mindful medicines whose purpose is to benefit patients as a whole and for the long term.
