2023 NeURO fellow
Biomedical computation major
Stanford University

Hi! I'm Hannah and I'm a freshman from the Chicago area planning on studying Biomedical Computation with a minor in Chemistry. I originally became interested in neuroscience once I found out I had a body-focused repetitive behavior (BFRB) and got involved in advocacy work and research about these stigmatized disorders. I'm currently learning how to program so I can use computational models to simulate effects of and therapies for neurological disorders in hopes of finding better future screening tools and treatments. I'm involved in the Stanford Undergraduate Neuroscience Society, Cardinal Free Clinics, and Stanford Women in Medicine. In my free time, I love going on long walks, baking brownies, and listening to Taylor Swift!
