About Me

I graduated from the University of California, Davis in 2015 with a dual degree in Neurobiology/Physiology and in Human Development. While at UC Davis, I worked as an undergraduate research assistant on studies investigating the phenotype of individuals with fragile X syndrome and the fragile X premutation. I currently work as an IBIC research coordinator, under Dr. Natalia Kleinhans. Our current research uses multi-modal neuroimaging to understand the functional connectivity and neural correlates of the olfactory and limbic systems in autism spectrum disorder. I am particularly interested in the underlying structural and functional mechanisms of sensory processing in neurodevelopmental disorders. I hope to attend graduate school so that I can continue providing care and support to kids with disabilities and their families.
