I’m a transfer student from Butte College, up in northern California near my hometown of Paradise. When I first started school, I rapidly became involved with and amazed by all things biology, a fascination that has never faded! I am particularly interested in studying the nervous system with an emphasis (obsession?) on questions about the biological basis of consciousness. I am thrilled to be learning lots, contributing to research, and taking care of the animals in Dr. Gold’s lab as I pursue my Neurobiology-focused degree. I’m also planning to apply to MD (and probably a few MD-PhD) programs in the upcoming cycle, so stay tuned for the next step in the adventure!
