Dr. Srini Pillay is an author, psychiatrist, certified master executive coach, and brain researcher. Srini is currently a part-time assistant professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. He's known for combining head and heart—figuratively and literally—in an approach to personal development and goal mastery that blends science, spirituality, and horns-grabbing joie de vivre to foster personal transformation in the milieu of stress, anxiety, and uncertainty that surrounds ambitious people in academia, business, and life. After graduating at the top of his class from medical school in South Africa, he received a Medical Research Council scholarship to study the neurochemistry of panic. Thereafter, he completed his residency in psychiatry at McLean Hospital—Harvard's largest freestanding psychiatric hospital—and completed fellowships in psychopharmacology, structural brain imaging, and functional brain imaging. He has also served as director of the outpatient anxiety disorders program at McLean Hospital and was director of the panic disorders research program in the brain imaging center. There, he spent 17 years studying functional brain imaging. During that time, he maintained an active clinical practice, which he continues today, in addition to his executive coaching practice and workshops to help develop leaders.Srini has been an expert guest for CNN, Fox, NPR, the New York Times, the Washington Post, The Huffington Post, Harvard Business School, Cosmopolitan, Elle, Forbes, Fortune, and many other news outlets in a variety of media.
