Biography


I completed my undergradtuade degree in Biology with a concentration in Neuroscience at DePaul University in Chicago, IL in 2015. My undergraduate research included medicinal chemistry research on Alzheimer's Disease and organic chemistry research on creating a novel copolymer. I also worked in clinical research at The Cleveland Clinic with Multiple Sclerosis and other demyleinating disease patients. 

I am a part of the Fall 2017 cohort at the University of Texas at Austin's Behavioral Neuroscience program. I will be working with Dr. Linda Noble to create an animal model on acceleration exclusive concussions and examine specific biomarkers of traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injuries in specific animal models.
