I am currently examining how chemical stimuli from conspecific can alter the brain before, during, and after puberty in mice. Specifically I want to determine what changes occur in neuron and glial populations based on age and pheromone exposure. Overall, I enjoy looking at how external (chemical, visual, behavioral, etc) and internal (hormonal) changes can alter neuroplasticity.

I have always had an interest in volunteering and outreach so I look for many opportunities to do so. I also enjoy reading, cooking, biking, hiking, and gardening. I have a huge interest in astrological phenomenon and even have hopes of being an amateur exoplanet discoverer one day.
