I am a graduating senior majoring in Cell Biology & Neuroscience and minoring in Psychology in the School of Arts and Sciences Honors Program.  I joined CLEF Lab in February 2016, during the start of my spring semester of my sophomore year.  I am currently working on an independent research project, under the supervision of Elena, one of the graduate students in our lab.  My initial research focus was on the effects of HDAC3i on extinction memory strength and specificity.  I am currently preparing for my honors thesis in CBN and the Honors Program, which focuses on the molecular mechanisms of ABR latency.  I am specifically interested in nicotinic acetylcholine receptor regulation in the auditory pathway, which includes subcortical structures, along with the primary auditory cortex.  I aspire to become a physician, and hope to conduct biomedical research.  During my free time, I like to spend time with family and friends.
