Summary

Neuroscience Student, Lawrence University, Appleton, WI
Curator, Neuroscience Knowledge Network
Research Investigator, NeuroLawrence Club at Lawrence University

I am an undergraduate student majoring in neuroscience.  I discovered neuroscience in a freshman psychology course, and after completing a course entitled brain and behavior during sophomore year, I declared my major.  Currently, my interests in neuroscience include the eye and the ocular system, addiction and the opioid epidemic, neural recording and mapping, neuroanatomy and physiology, psychopharmacology, pain, movement, neurodegenerative disorders, mental health, etc.  The more I delve into my major, the more I will narrow down my interests.  I am working towards a position in graduate school after Lawrence to obtain either a masters or doctorate in neuroscience.

Addiction Presentation

This is a comprehensive overview of the psychology, neuroscience, and economics of addiction.  I prepared this power point as a model for other students in the NeuroLawrence Club at Lawrence University.  The club board members and I were starting an initiative to have student presentations at as many meetings as possible, so I volunteered to present first in order to demonstrate to the younger club members.
