|Minor||Chemistry and Global Health|
|Why Neuroscience?||I love the neuroscience major because of how interdisciplinary it is. Studying the brain from a molecular, neural, and behavioral level has given me a well-rounded explanation of why humans act the way we do. I’ve also been able to apply my neuroscience knowledge to other studies like education and global health and learn how this growing field can contribute to solutions for real-world problems.|
Duke has made me feel at home; from the excitement around game days to collaboration in classes, the campus culture is one that always supports students. The endless academic opportunities, like the Charles Lafitte Foundation Conference Award, have allowed me to focus my research interests and gain practical experience from experts on topics I’m passionate about.
|Campus and/or Community Involvement||I currently serve as the Internal Director of Duke DevilTHON and Director of Fundraising for Duke Eyeserve! Additionally, I am a member of PhiDE, the Duke Children’s Ambassadors Program, and conduct research in the Varghese Lab and through the Bass Connections team “Spine Surgery Patient Navigators.”|
