Michael is a technician at Shore Clinical TMS, passionate to help people in his home community in any way he can to reach their own goals and to feel satisfaction with their lives. As an aspiring physician scientist, he is particularly interested in neuroscience and both natural and engineered neuroplasticity-based treatments, like mindfulness meditation and TMS.
While completing his Bachelor’s in biomedical engineering at the University of Maryland, he did research on neruomodulation like transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) at the National Institute of Mental Health. He also assisted with patient-centered outcomes advocacy at the National Health Council in Washington D.C. After this he attended Imperial College London for his Master’s in neurotechnology and performed research on esketamine (Spravato), a novel fast-acting antidepressant, for his thesis.
In the future he plans to become a doctor in neurological and mental health and to advance the frontier of neural engineering. For now, he wants to positively impact as many people’s lives as possible at Shore Clinical TMS and to motivate every patient to become the best versions of themselves that they can possibly be.
