Rohan Dixit, founder and CEO of Lief Therapeutics: Discover and improve the state of your mind through continuous HRV monitoring with biofeedback

Rohan left his academic job as neuroscientist to spend almost an year with monks in Tibetan mountains. Initially focusing on scanning monks’ brains, his focus shifted to heart rate variability (HRV) as a way into the state of our mind. In this interview, Rohan discusses HRV both as a measurement of and intervention to mental wellbeing, Lief Therapeutics and its wearable continuous HRV monitor, the often unknown power of biofeedback to control our body, and much more!
