I am a junior majoring in Brain and Cognitive Sciences, minoring in Business Management, and concentrating in education. I’m interested in learning more about how neuroscience related to other fields. In particular, how these relationships can be leveraged and neuroscience can be used to combat inequity in the US.

I’ve researched in a variety of labs at MIT, including studying the potential effects of mindfulness training on students’ attention spans and their brains’ default mode networks, and researching the implications of neuroscience on American education and teacher training programs. In the Neuroeconomics Lab, I’m studying self-deception from a developmental perspective, seeking to uncover when self-deception starts to occur in children and how self-deception develops throughout adolescence in order to better understand the utility of self-deception.
