Kelly Harvell

2023 NeURO fellow
Bioengineering major
Stanford University

My name is Kelly and I am a bioengineering major from Monterey, CA (‘24). I am interested in exploring neuromodulation as a treatment option for neurologic disorders and am excited to be working with the Baumer Lab as a NeURO fellow. The Baumer Lab seeks to understand the impact of epilepsy on brain connectivity in pediatric patients. This summer, I will evaluate the effect of a neuromodulation technique called transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) on thalamocortical interactions in healthy participants, to establish precedent for using TMS in this application for future use in pediatric epilepsy patients. When I am not in the lab, I enjoy hiking, exploring new foods, photography, and reading.
