Description:

I recently graduated from the College of Arts and Science at New York University, where I studied Neuroscience and Psychology and wrote my senior thesis in the laboratory of Dr. Joseph LeDoux. My work, which was funded by the BP Endure Fellowship, focused on the extinction of fear conditioning in the lateral amygdala. My research interests include memory formation and neurodegenerative disorders such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and Alzheimer's disease. I plan to continue doing research on fear conditioning while I apply to graduate programs.
