I am Katie, a Bioengineering Major interested in studying neurodegeneration and stem cell therapies. Previously, I worked in the Bronte-Stewart lab to investigate the potential relationships between kinematic variables and changes in Parkinson's Disease symptoms over time. Currently, I am a member of the Wernig lab, where I am studying microglia replacement and its impact on Multiple Sclerosis and the central nervous system immune environment. Outside of research, I volunteer as a member of Stanford Side by Side, a community service/a capella organization. In my free time, I love to sing, play Minecraft with friends, and explore the San Francisco Bay Area.
