For my undergraduate career I attended Arizona State University where I earned a BS in Psychology with honors from Barrett, the Honors College. Beginning in December 2003, I began working in Dr. Conrad Stress Lab, where my research focused primarily on understanding the different morphological and behavioral effects seen following chronic stress. Then in January 2006, I began working on my senior honors thesis, which investigated the sexual dimorphism in the influence of chronic corticosterone and estrogen treatment on hippocampal function and morphology. Currently as a first year graduate student in the Klintsova lab, I am beginning work on my first year project. My research here focuses on gaining a better understanding of the damaging morphological effects that ethanol exposure has on a still developing brain and exploring routes to ameliorate this damage.
