Bulletproof Executive Radio was born out of a fifteen-year single-minded crusade to upgrade the human being using every available technology. It distills the knowledge of world-class MDs, biochemists, Olympic nutritionists, meditation experts, and more than $1M spent on personal self-experiments. From private brain EEG facilities hidden in a Canadian forest to remote monasteries in Tibet, from Silicon Valley to the Andes, high tech entrepreneur Dave Asprey used hacking techniques and tried everything himself, obsessively focused on discovering: What are the simplest things you can do to be better at everything? Welcome to being Bulletproof, the State of High Performance where you take control and improve your biochemistry, your body, and your mind so they work in unison, helping you execute at levels far beyond what you’d expect, without burning out, getting sick, or just acting like a stressed-out a-hole. It used to take a lifetime to radically rewire the human body and mind this way. Technology has changed the rules. Follow along as Dave Asprey and guests provide you with everything you need to upgrade your mind, body, and life.
Dr. Divya Chander is a physician, neuroscientist, and (a total badass) futurist who trained at Harvard, UCSD, UCSF, and the Salk Institute. In the operating room, Dr. Chander applies EEG technology to understand what human brains look like when they lose and regain consciousness, and has recently developed a precision medicine initiative at Stanford aimed at understanding genetic variability in responses to anesthetic drugs.
Her postdoctoral training in optogenetic technology was conducted at Stanford, where she used light-activated ion channels inserted in DNA to study sleep and consciousness switches in brains. Her goal is to understand the neural mechanisms of consciousness, as well as the evolution of human consciousness secondary to human augmentation.
She is currently working on applications of neural wearable devices to crossover consumer and medical markets. She also works in the field of space life sciences and is involved with a consortium that elaborated a road-map for studying the effect of microgravity and radiation on the nervous system, cardiovascular system, cognition and sleep.
