Science biography

 

I am a lab manager in the Robertson Lab at Dartmouth College. My projects use virtual reality and functional magnetic resonance imaging to study scene perception and spatial memory. I am a recent 2021 graduate from Dartmouth with a major in Neuroscience. As an undergraduate, I spent three years working with the Robertson Lab on projects investigating sensory differences in autism and place-memory in the brain. 

 

Non-science biography

 

I am from Mount Vernon in the lovely state of Washington. Outside the lab, I volunteer for hospitals and special needs groups in the Upper Valley. In the outdoors I enjoy kayaking, hiking to waterfalls, and climbing trees. 

 

Special interests
