How/Why Research? I have a neurological condition that affects my vision. With this in mind, I came into UNC knowing I wanted to partake in research involving vision, neuroscience, and low-income communities.
Research Experience: In the fall of 2021, I was a Research Analyst for the Fitting Lab, studying how cellular function is affected by HIV-1 infections and (end)cannabinoids. Also, in the fall, I began as a Research Assistant in the EPIC study, where we are interested in how the brain and body work together to create emotional experiences. Last fall, I started in the AMP lab and conducted an independent research project this past spring about how VR experiences compare to the real world
