I earned an undergraduate degree in Legal Studies from the University of California, Berkeley in 2010. My interest in neuroscience began after taking a course in the Philosophy of Mind and subsequently spent two years in the lab of Dr. Shaowen Bao exploring the link between auditory cortical plasticity and phantom noise. My current work in the London lab focuses on the cortical control of courtship-related ultrasonic vocalizations in mice.
