2023 NeURO fellow
Psychology & data science major
Stanford University

As a sophomore, I am currently pursuing a degree in psychology with a concentration in neuroscience, complemented by a minor in data science. I was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles, California. At Stanford I have had the opportunity to engage in research with the Vision and Perception Neuroscience Lab that focuses on understanding the visual development of infants spanning from 3 months to 1 year of age. In addition to my research work, I also serve as a student staff member at the First Generation and/or Low Income Student Success Center. During my free time, I enjoy hiking, watching documentaries, exploring new places, and reading nonfiction books about psychology.
