I graduated with my B.S. in Neuroscience from the University of Texas at Dallas in 2008. In 2010, I joined the UC Davis Neuroscience Graduate Group. My current research interests include the investigation of: (1) networks involved in recent versus remote memory retrieval and (2) the influence of environmental manipulations on neural network reactivation. In addition to research, I have worked as a volunteer for the NIH radio, blogged for professional conferences, and volunteered as a writer for the Association of Women in Science (AWIS). When not in the lab, I can be found on twitter @geneticexpns, in a twisted up yoga pose, or exploring the beaches and mountains of Northern California with my partner and our dog.
