Throughout my undergrad, I have focused much of my studies on neurobiology and its intimate link with cognition. This interest is what led me to the project I am working on with Erika under Dr. Poppenk’s supervision. In short, we are investigating how individual variations in hippocampal anatomy relate to differences in memory quality and performance. This is also my second year volunteering in the Adolescent Dynamics Lab right next door, where we are exploring the changes that children experience as they develop into adolescents. As a third year Biology-Psychology Specialization student, I also spend a lot of time learning about trees, lizards, and bugs.

If I’m not hanging out on the second floor of Craine, it’s safe to assume I’m in my onesie looking at pictures of pugs or at QP ordering nachos.
