B.S. in Neuroscience, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, US, 2019


I majored in Neuroscience and minored in Bioengeneering and Chemistry during my undergraduate in University of Pittsburgh. I worked in Dr. Citlali L√≥pez-Ortiaz’s Neuroscience of Dance in Health and Disability lab during my first year in Neuroscience Program, where I became interested in learning motor control, modeling neuromuscular system and developing rehabilitation methods for people with movement disorders.
