Undergraduate Student

Years in Lab: 2017 - present 

I am an undergraduate student at Stanford University majoring in Human Biology. I joined the Parker Lab through the Human Biology Research Exploration program. My previous experiences working alongside children with autism further developed my resolve to improve the quality of others’ lives, so I am excited to have the opportunity to contribute to research in the Parker Lab which seeks to better understand the biological basis of autism, and test novel medications to improve social abilities in children with this disorder.

Awards and Accomplishments:
