Words of advice

Pursuing the field of research is a great way to nurture your sense of curiosity! I highly recommend research for anyone that is excited to come up with creative solutions for complex problems.    

How will my work Improve Life?

My research will hopefully shed some insight on how the adult brain continues to change and adapt to experiences throughout life, which in turn can help to develop therapies for various brain diseases.

My future plans

Pursue a career in technical laboratory work, ultimately managing a research lab at the end of it.
