I'm incredibly fascinated by biology, neuroscience, philosophy and global studies. I not only want to understand what gives life meaning but how our brains can create the perception of meaning in the first place. I'm currently researching the neurological causes of depression and how we can treat it with emerging science such as psychedelic therapy.
