Having grown up in Western Massachusetts, I moved to Boston where I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology and Philosophy from Boston University.  Continuing at the University, I went on to join the Department as a Ph.D. student working in Dr. Irina Zhdanova’s Sleep and Circadian Physiology lab.  I am currently studying the circadian regulation of adult neurogenesis in zebrafish.  In my spare time, I enjoy volunteering at a local women’s shelter, fishing, playing basketball, and following local sports teams.
