Hometown: Arlington, VA
Major: B.S. Neuroscience and Behavior, Spanish, Class of 2021

I am a Sophomore from Arlington, Virginia, currently majoring in Neuroscience and Behavior and Spanish in the College of Science. After graduation, I plan to work in the medical field for a gap year before applying to medical school. In addition to the focus of the Koen Lab on neurodegeneration in relation to learning and memory, I am interested in the neuroscience behind language acquisition. Outside of the lab I enjoy being a part of the Model UN Club on campus, the Men's Club Water Polo Team, and working as research assistant in International Studies.
