Wisconsin is my home, i was raised by cows. 

I am a rising junior at WashU majoring in Biology and Neuroscience, and a member of the Women's Soccer team. Fascinated by the brain’s incredible ability to maintain stability despite its ever-changing inputs, I work to develop and refine micro-electrode recording technologies in order to increase the longevity and durability of in vivo recording. My work is primarily with carbon fiber and laser cutting technologies.

Outside of the lab my interests include hiking, kicking a ball on Francis field, and perusing St. Louis in search of the best grilled cheese the city has to offer.
