Educational Background:

BE in Biomedical Engineering, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN
Research Project:

  Research Project - Microglia-mediated alterations in the developing cortex in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Various studies have hypothesized links between immune dysregulation and ASD. I hope to understand how the resident immune cells in the brain, the microglia, impact cortical neuron development in the background of ASD-assocaited genes.
