Educational Background

  • 2018 (expected), BS, Behavioral Neuroscience, University of Kansas


I am a senior majoring in Behavioral Neuroscience. After graduating from KU, I intend to pursue graduate school for a doctorate in Neuroscience. My research interests include using the prairie vole to study the neurocircuitry of aggression as well as the consequences of social defeat. I am also interested in developing the prairie vole as a model for aging and neurodegenerative disease as it relates to deficits in cognition and social behavior.
