Conducted research alongside DARPA, NASA, and the US EPA, and written multiple biotechnology patents, which form the basis of Halo Neuroscience, a company I cofounded in 2012. Based in SF, Halo has since raised over 10 million in funding and released a first of its kind device which improves human cognition and motor abilities, and is currently in use by US Special Forces. In 2014, I founded Nebulab NYC, a Brooklyn based, privately funded laboratory conducting pioneering research in neuropsychology and cybernetics. As a mentor at Techstars, Urban-X, Startup Institute, and Protohack, I help startups and individuals work around problems, refine ideas, and reach goals.

In collaboration with Ninth Wave Global, currently planning an early-2018-slated Antarctic research expedition to study group psychology under extreme conditions, and effects of international encroachment on the continent.
