I graduated from the College of Charleston Honors Program in Charleston, South Carolina in 2008 with a BS in Psychology and a BA in English. During my undergraduate work, I developed an interest in cognitive neuroscience and child brain development, and after graduating I moved to Chapel Hill to pursue these interests in UNC's Curriculum in Neurobiology. Outside of research I enjoy swimming, running, writing, and working with children.
I joined Dr. Aysenil Belger's lab in the Department of Psychiatry in 2009. I am also a member of the HHMI Program in Translational Medicine. I study auditory sensory processing in children with autism using electroencephalography (EEG).
