Neil Savalia


Born and raised in West Orange, NJ, I completed my undergraduate education at Washington University in St. Louis (2009-2013). Following college, I pursued training in human brain imaging at the University of Texas at Dallas (2013-2017). I now work in the lab of Alex Kwan studying how rapid-acting antidepressants work and ways to individualize antidepressant treatment. In my spare time I can be found hanging out in the mountains, making music, experimenting in the kitchen, or trying something new.
