Emory University, BS Neuroscience and Behavioral Biology 2016
I conducted my undergraduate thesis under Hillary Rodman, studying aberrant prefrontal cortex GABAergic circuitry in Rhesus macaque following hippocampal injury. After graduating, I worked in Donna Maney's Bird Brain lab studying neuroendocrine pathways in two species of songbirds: White Throated sparrows and Zebra Finch. After joining the MD/PhD program at UKCOM I worked with Dr. Sharon Walsh investigating behavioral change among those suffering from substance use disorders and endocarditis. Currently, I am working in the Brian Gold cognitive neuroscience lab investigating neuroimaging biomarkers of aging.
