I am currently a postdoc at Washington University in St. Louis, working under the direction of Dr. Cynthia Rogers and Dr. Chris Smyser. My research examines the functional brain network development in neonates and toddlers, with a focus on the pace of brain maturation and how neuroplasticity changes across development. I am also interested in effects of the early environment on brain development.
I graduated in the spring of 2014 from the University of Arizona with a B.S. in Neuroscience. From 2011 to 2014, I worked in the lab of Dr. Jamie Edgin, examining longitudinal effects of sleep disruption on cognition in children with Down syndrome.
