I am a Master’s student in the BBCS stream at Queen’s University.  I grew up in Georgetown, Ontario, a small town outside of Toronto, and completed my Honors BSc degree in Psychology at Western University in 2015. Broadly, I am interested in studying memory processes in humans. For my Master’s thesis I am investigating the differential contributions of the anterior and posterior hippocampus on memory performance, as well as how individual differences in these contributions can influence our own traits and abilities. Outside of school my interests include trying new foods, reading, and binge-watching Netflix.
