I received undergraduate degrees in Molecular & Cell Biology and Integrative Biology from UC Berkeley. While there, I worked in the Wilbrecht Lab, where I used behavioral tasks and retrograde tracing to study cognitive flexibility in a mouse model of autism. In the future, I hope to apply to an MD/PhD program to study the role of brain-body interactions in the impact of early life experience on health and sex differences in disease.
