Sina was born and raised in Iran. He came out to Massachusetts to attend Harvard University where he obtained his undergraduate degree in Neuroscience with a secondary in Economics. In college, Sina conducted wet-lab research under the supervision of Dr. Hugo Bellen, worked as a legal intern in Levy Firestone Muse LLP, and served as a research assistant for Dr. Francis Shen at the Harvard MGH Center For Law, Brain & Behavior. Sina moved to California (by bike!) to begin medical school at Stanford University School of Medicine where he is currently exploring clinical and research opportunities in functional neurosurgery and interventional psychiatry. Outside of medical school, Sina is an avid cyclist and currently rides with the Stanford Cycling Team. Sina also enjoys going on walks, doing yoga, listening to audiobooks, and learning to cook Persian food.
