Certificates: Quantitative and Computational Neuroscience
Study Abroad: Spring semester (2013) at the University of Oxford for Biochemistry, Experimental Psychology, and Medicine
Hi everyone! I'm a senior (gah! already?!?) from Tucson, Arizona. I've just returned to Princeton from a semester abroad in the UK, and I'm unabashedly excited to be back on campus and among fellow Princetonians for my final year at the best place in the world. Academically, I'm a member of the Psychology department pursuing a certificate in Quantitative and Computational Neuroscience, with particular interests in neural stem cell growth and development, translational neurobiological research, and clumsily trying to understand neural network models of adult neurogenesis in the mammalian hippocampus.
Outside the classroom, I'm a head fellow at the Writing Center, student intern and writer for the Office of Communications, and lab tech in Elizabeth Gould's behavioral neuroscience lab. Otherwise, I love distance running and listening to shamelessly terrible pop music (we're talking Ke$ha, David Guetta, and obviously One Direction) - and I can frequently be found reading about brains in the basement of Lewis Library or terrorizing my lab mates/fantastic graduate student mentors in Green Hall.
I look forward to getting to know all of you, and I sincerely hope you'll get in touch with me to talk about academics or life at Princeton in general!
