In 2022, I received my B.S. in Psychology with a specialization in Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience from the University of Florida. At UF, I was a part of the UPLOAD-2 study, under Dr. Kimberly Sibille and Dr. Jared Tanner, that researched the biopsychosocial involvement in chronic knee pain and helped determine a predicted brain age gap for our participants. 

My research interests revolve around understanding and mitigating neurodegenerative diseases while incorporating neuroimaging techniques and machine learning. I intend to obtain my PhD to continue studying neurodegenerative diseases. Outside of research, I enjoy cooking, playing video games, and playing with my cat, Nixto.

Strange, but true: I have watched almost all of Gordon Ramsay’s series; however, I have yet to try making one of his recipes!
