Undergraduate Student

Years in Lab: 2017 - present 

I am an undergraduate at Stanford University majoring in Human Biology. Based on my experiences as a dance teacher for children with disabilities, I sought to learn more about neurodevelopmental disorders in a research setting. This summer I will be studying the behavior and biology of naturally occurring low-sociability in rhesus monkeys as a translational model to better understand autism spectrum disorder in humans.
