I graduated from the University of Washington in 2018 and completed an undergraduate thesis on longitudinal modeling of DMN connectivity in normal aging, mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease. I’m currently working as a research coordinator for Dr. Madhyastha’s R01 investigating network activity and cognition in Parkinson’s Disease assessed by simultaneous fMRI/EEG. I’m concurrently working as a research associate with Dr. Crane and Dr. Madhyastha examining the relationship between functional network trajectories and different Alzheimer’s disease cognitive subtypes. Though I’ve only been a part of this team for three years, I’ve grown so much from this experience. I started with zero computer programing experience or background in neuroimaging but with the support of the amazing folks at IBIC, I’ve had the opportunity to learn skills beyond what I imagined as an undergraduate. In the future, I plan to attend medical school and continue researching Alzheimer’s disease.
