I am originally of Indian origin and moved to the United States in pursuit of higher education in the field of clinical psychology. I obtained my doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from University of Toledo (2015) under the mentorship of Dr. Jon Elhai; completed my pre-doctoral internship at Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University (2015); and a post-doctoral fellowship at the Boston VA Healthcare System under the mentorship of Dr. Brett Litz (2016). I consider myself to be a scientist-practitioner; and this approach richly informs my research and clinical work. Passion for research, a scientifically-oriented vision, determination, a systematic approach, and a collaborative working style define my work ethics.
Balance in life is extremely critical to me. Spending time with my wonderful family, enjoying creativity, and being outdoors are very highly valued. Travel genes are inherent in my family, and in my opinion offer a unique opportunity to learn, grow, and educate.
