Welcome to NRSC 2100! I hope everybody is just as excited to take this course as I am to assist in the teaching and learning of the course. Neuroscience is a new, fun, and exciting field and I'm glad to have the privilege of being a student TA for this course. As a student, I know how difficult some science courses can be, however, I hope to encourage the learning of the subject matter by providing students with help when it's needed. I am readily available to answer questions via email, Coursestreet, and Facebook, so if you're in doubt about anything school related or confused about any of the course material don't hesitate to ask.
I am currently a senior scheduled to graduate in December. I am majoring in neuroscience and MCDB. For the past year and a half I have been working in Dr. Cooper's laboaratory and have recently began working on a research project dedicated to characterizing the functional role of the subiculum in a specific reward-related task involving a rodent animal model. Aside from neuroscience research there are several other activities I enjoy. I am from Lakewood, CO and I love the outdoors, thus the reason I stayed in Colorado for college. I enjoy snowboarding, skateboarding, mountain biking, road biking, mountain climbing, and camping to name a few activities.
