I am queer and I am a neuroscientist. //
I’m a postdoc at MIT investigating neural circuits coordinating emotional and motivational processing, and how these pathways are dependent on hunger states. I began my science training at Indiana University and furthered it by obtaining a PhD from the University of Michigan. My identity includes, but is not limited to, being a scientist, an athlete, queer, a friend, an aunt, a girlfriend, an activist, and a mentor.
