Academic. Researcher. Explorer.
My path to get here was not linear, but I like to think that I learned a lot along the way. This convoluted path also proved to solidify what I knew all along: I love science, I love to teach science, and I love introducing students to research.
The lab mascot! A poorly extracted dorsal root ganglion resulted in this colorful prehistoric masterpiece. Captured during my thesis research, Toprosaur safeguards the lab.
(The name is a combination of the TOPRO3 antibody and dinosaur)
Student. Traveler. Lover of Coffee.
I am an undergraduate sophomore pursuing two degrees in Biochemistry and Neuroscience. I enjoy learning all things science while being fueled by coffee in all forms. I am stoked (haha get it?) to join Dr. Stokes' lab this summer and look forward to discovering new techniques and skills!
Stokes Lab Graduates
Biology/Biochemistry double major focusing on Pre-Medical studies. I am doing research in preparation for medical school and am interested in learning more about confocal microscopy and glial cells.
Student. Science enthusiast. Wannabe Researcher.
Currently pursuing a major in Neuroscience, learning all I can about the brain. Excited to learn about how the scientific process of researching works from the best, while also learning the mechanisms behind one of the most complex organs of our body. Team Stoked!
