Short Biography

I received my B.S. in Molecular and Cellular Biology from the University of Puget Sound. During that time, I conducted independent research examining the effect of synthetic cathinones on GnRH neurons in zebrafish under the guidance of Dr. Siddharth Ramakrishnan. I am currently pursuing my Ph.D. in Neuroscience in the Shepherd Lab, where I study dysregulation of the Arc complex, which is implicated in schizophrenia, using biochemical and behavioral approaches.
