Project Coordinator

  • Title Project Coordinator
  • Office 170H
  • Education B.A. in Psychology, Minor in Neuroscience, Gordon College, 2019

Initially from San Diego, CA and Houston, TX I moved to the northeast and graduated from Gordon College in Wenham, MA with a bachelor’s degree in psychology and neuroscience in 2019. While in undergrad I worked primarily in the Neuroscience of Language and Bilingualism Lab focusing on EEG studies on language processing in Native Korean and English speakers with Dr. Susan C. Bobb.

Here at CARE, I am working on a new SFARI (Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative) funded project that focuses on Perceptual integration in adolescents with ASD; a wonderful new project where we get to collaborate with both the Laboratory of Comparative Cognition and the Cognition and Decision lab here at BU. In my free time I love to watch movies, read, knit, and bake along with The Great British Bake Off!
