Pre-Doctoral Candidate Researcher,  Helen Wills Neuroscience

I received my Bachelor's degree in neuroscience from Vassar College, where I studied how chronic alcohol exposure alters PTSD circuitry in Dr. Hadley Bergstrom's lab. After graduating, I worked with Dr. Eric Huang at UCSF to characterize how chromatin remodeling complexes regulate neurodevelopment. In the Dillin lab, I am working with Cory Pender to understand how the central nervous system conveys chemosensory cues to peripheral tissues.
