When I first started my PhD, my main focus was autism and neuro imaging. Over the last few months, I have also begun work on projects involving Alzheimer's, "alternative" treatments, and gut microbiome.
I grew up in Kansas and did my undergrad at KU in Speech Language and Hearing. I have lived in Columbia for a few years now and really enjoy it. When I have free time, I can usually be found working with one of several animal rescue groups, running with one of my dogs on the MKT, or eating (food rocks!!!). I also try to take a backpacking trip every year to Rocky Mountain National Park.
