Major: BA in Neuroscience and Behavior, Pre-Health, Class of 2022

I am a B.A. Neuroscience & Behavior student with a Pre-Health supplemental major, and I hope to pursue a combined MD/PhD after graduation. My major academic focus is in neurodegenerative cognitive diseases, specifically Alzheimer’s and other tauopathies, and how their progression rivals that of healthy aging. I want to find how/why their disease progressions are often similar, and if these similarities can give us clues into how to slow/stop/reverse their damaging effects. Outside of school, I love to work-out, cook, and eat obscene amounts of ranch dressing.
