- B.S in Biology with a concentration in Neuroscience, Hunter College-CUNY
I am interested in studying neuron-glial interactions at different levels. During my
undergraduate, I majored in Biology with a research concentration in Neuroscience and
minors in computer science and physics. My main research project at the Melendez Lab at Hunter
College focused on understanding the impact of extracellular matrix mechanical cues on
oligodendrocyte development in vitro and in vivo. In the Nedivi Lab, I am honored to
participate in the project of Dr. Ordonez to further explore the mechanism of CPG15-mediated
postsynaptic density protein 95 (PSD95) with AMPA receptor. I also participate in the project
of Dr. Schmerl studying parvalbumin (PV) interneurons in the binocular visual cortex.
During my spare time, I like outdoor running, playing with my cats, cooking, skiing, and
developing new skills!
