Description:

Graduate student pursuing a PhD in Neuroscience at University of Texas. I received my bachelors from Hunter College in biochemistry and psychology. My interests are in learning, memory, and pharmacology. This past summer I worked in Dr. Gina Poe’s lab at the University of Michigan looking at reversal learning and negative feedback mechanisms in rats exhibiting PTSD like symptoms. This coming semester I will begin working on a project investigating autism in Dr. Eric Klann’s lab in NYU. In 2015, I started my PhD training at Southwestern University of Texas in the field of Neuroscience.
