I'm a biomedical researcher and former medical officer of the Army National Guard. Currently, I'm in my fourth year of the Biomedical Sciences PhD program at the University of South Carolina's School of Medicine.
My research is in the neuroscience field. In particular, I'm focused on understanding how the neurotransmitter acetylcholine operates within the amygdala - the brain's "emotional hub" - to shape the way we experience negative and positive emotions. One thing I really enjoy about being immersed in the biomedical sciences is having countless opportunities to learn new and interesting things about health and the human body. Not only this, I also love discussing these topics with a variety of different audiences.
After I graduate, I'm interested in becoming a science writer. I'm always looking for networking opportunities, so please reach out if you would like to connect!
