Jeff received his Bachelor’s of Arts in Cognitive Science and Music from the University of California, Berkeley. There, he worked with Dr. Mahesh Srinivasan and Dr. Ariel Starr in the Language and Cognitive Development Lab on a study related to child acquisition of a linguistic tool called polysemy. As a double major in Music and Cognitive Science, Jeff developed an interest in the benefits that the arts can have on individuals. This interest carries over to his work in the neurology node of AIR-P, where he works with Dr. Rujuta Wilson on a dance intervention study investigating the positive impact dance can have on children and adolescents with neurodevelopmental conditions. He also works with Dr. Julian Martinez in the genetics node and assists with the coordination of the Infrastructure for Collaborative Research (ICR).
