I am a first year undergraduate at Florida State University, and extremely grateful to be working for the Gratton Lab. I grew up in Fort Myers, Florida before moving to Tallahassee to further my education at FSU. I’m currently majoring in Cell and Molecular Neuroscience and am looking into a possible double major in another STEM field. I’ve had previous research experience at the University of Connecticut and am excited to continue my research journey. I plan on attending graduate school and eventually diving into my own research. Currently I’m interested in the connection between genetics and neurodegenerative conditions, diseases, and illnesses; I’m also interested in possible solutions to these problems through developing technology and medicine, although I’m fascinated by most aspects of the brain.
