Years in Lab: 2018 - present
I received my Bachelor of Science in Psychology from George Mason University in 2015. As an undergraduate, I worked as a research assistant in a cognitive behavioral neuroscience lab studying looming cognitive style (a risk factor for anxiety). Upon graduating, I worked in the Mitra Lab at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. There I contributed to The Mouse Brain Architecture Project, the goal of which was to construct brain-wide maps of neural connectivity. I am very excited for the opportunity to combine my research skills and degree in psychology to help advance autism research in the Parker Lab!
