I am a Senior in the Neuroscience and Cognitive Science program at the University of Arizona. My curiosity about the brain began in high school, when I got involved in research in Dr. Carol Barnes’ lab. In the Barnes lab, we are working towards a better understanding of how the processes underlying learning and memory change throughout the healthy aging of the brain. In pursuit of my goals of making discoveries and contributing to communication between scientists and the public, I plan to apply to graduate school and earn a PhD in Neuroscience. If I’m not in the lab or studying, I can usually be found exploring nature, traveling, writing, reading, and engaging with groups that foster undergraduate research involvement on campus.

The University of Arizona’s Undergraduate Biology Research Program is partnering with KXCI 91.3 to produce “Thesis Thursday,” a weekly segment featuring student researchers talking about their undergraduate thesis projects, or research projects while working with University professors. Students describe their research, their overall goals and career interests and where they think their research will lead. As well, they get a chance to share the music and interests that motivate them.Broadcast three times every Thursday with a new student each week.

Thursdays: 9:55 AM, 11:55 AM, and 2:55 PM

Produced by Cathy Rivers
