I graduated in May 2019 from Providence College with a dual degree in psychology and biology. I represented Providence on their track and cross country teams, and I made myself a fixture in Dr. Pamela Snodgrass’s Circadian rhythm lab. I got to explore and reflect on the meaningfulness of both molecular and behavioral effects of sleep disruption, and develop under the wings of some amazing role models. I am delighted I could start my career in the Stevens Lab in December 2019, where I am working towards manipulating microglia using viral vectors, and tracking key cytokines during development. I love being, albeit small, a part of understanding psychopathology.
