I’m a grad student in the Neuroscience Training Program studying neuronal migration and the role of F-BAR proteins in neuritogenesis. I am interested in looking at how F-Bar proteins distort cell membranes by producing invaginations and protrusions. These changes to the membrane have a role in how the cell can migrate in the developing brain. I am also a STEM Public Service Fellow and I work with the Graduate Association of Interdisciplinary Neuroscience Students. When I’m not in lab I love to bake, hike, and take care of my plant babies.
