Short Biography

I obtained my undergraduate degree in neuroscience from Bowdoin College where I studied the molecular mechanisms underlying compensatory neuronal growth following injury. After graduation, I worked as a research assistant at McLean Hospital and Harvard Medical School where I investigated gene regulatory networks in inhibitory cells relevant to the etiology of schizophrenia. My interest in neuroscience stems from a desire to enhance our knowledge of the basic mechanisms of nervous system function to allow for the development of more promising treatments for a range of neurological disorders. As a graduate student in the Biederer group at Tufts, I study the signaling pathways linking cell adhesion, secreted factors, and neuronal activity with the neuronal actin cytoskeleton and how these signaling pathways impact brain development.
