Short Biography

During my undergraduate studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz I worked in Dr. Jean FoxTree’s psycholinguistic laboratory researching the extent to which synesthesia is present in the general population. Next, I went on to obtain my Masters in Dr. Miri VanHoven’s neurogenetic laboratory at San José State University studying the molecular mechanisms of synaptic partner recognition, a crucial step of neural circuit formation. In the Biederer lab, I continue with my studies of the molecular mechanisms governing CNS development and my current work focuses on characterizing the role of SynCAM2 in synapse formation, function, and maintenance
