I am a 4th year Neuroscience major in Georgia Tech’s College of Sciences. I am interested in exploring the use of optogenetics to induce behaviors, as well as the development of new biosensors to track calcium and dopamine levels within cells. In the future, I plan to obtain my PhD and pursue research. Outside of the lab, I like to create nature ink drawings and crochet.

Strange but true: I’ve been keeping a diary since I started elementary school. Ten years ago, I wrote, “I hope to be a scientist when I grow up.” Each day I get closer to making that come true!
