Description:

I am currently pursuing a PhD at John Hopkins University. I am conducting research in Cohen's laboratory. My undergraduate training was at New York University with a major in Neural Science and a minor in Psychology. I have conducted research at New York University (2010-2011), University of Wisconsin - Madison (Summer 2011), Hunter College (2011-2013), and Vanderbilt University (Summer 2012). My research interests include translational research of psychiatry disorders, the prefrontal cortex, and learning and memory. In the fall, I will begin my PhD studies at Johns Hopkins University.
