    Short Biography

    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!
