Hi everyone, and welcome to the HumBio Core! I am so excited to work with all of you this year! The Core was one of my favorite academic experiences at Stanford because it introduced me to all of the topics that I am passionate about – women’s health, child development, and the complexities of the human brain. I am looking forward to helping you all identify your passions in the Core as well, so feel free to come talk to me in office hours about your interests and ideas! During my time as an undergrad, I danced with the Stanford Bhangra Team and the Stanford Dollies, I coached gymnastics for 4-6 year olds, and I was a TA for Psych 1 and the Human Physiology Laboratory class. In addition, I conducted research on fetal brain development, worked as a HumBio Student Advisor, and volunteered with Science in Service. In my free time, I love dancing, trying new food, and skyping with my miniature schnauzer, Bentley Jarvis. I can’t wait to meet all of you!
