I graduated from the University of Wisconsin - Madison in 2022 with a B.S. in Neurobiology. As an undergraduate, I worked in the lab of Dr. Levine and Dr. Abbott where I studied women’s health disorders using a nonhuman primate model. I explored this work more throughout my honors thesis where I studied the effects of knocking down estrogen-receptor alpha in the hypothalamus of rhesus macaques. In addition to this work, I spent a summer at the Broad Institute where I got a taste of researching psychiatric and neurodegenerative diseases by studying a risk gene implicated in schizophrenia. As a Research Associate in the Stevens Lab, I am excited to continue learning about the intricacies of the brain through my work with Dr. Dan Wilton!
