I am a rising sophomore in the Trinity College of Arts & Sciences originally from Wheeling, WV (and more recently from Durham, NC) intending to major in Neuroscience and receive minors in Psychology and Chemistry. I am also a Huang Fellow through Duke’s Science & Society department.
On campus, I was formerly an undergraduate researcher at the Glickfeld lab studying cholinergic projections from the basal forebrain to the visual cortex. Currently, I greatly enjoy showing prospective students around campus as a tour guide. I’m also re-launching Duke’s Dance Marathon program, DevilTHON, which is a year-round philanthropic endeavor to benefit pediatric healthcare at Duke Children’s.
Here at the Moffitt-Caspi Lab, I very much look forward to working with Dr. Aaron Reuben. I am interested in the impact of different childhood environments (specifically within disadvantaged communities) on cognitive decline and the development of Alzheimer’s.
