I am currently a second-year graduate student in the Neuroscience Graduate Program at UVA. I graduated from the University of Vermont in 2014 with a B.S. in Biological Sciences. Here in the Kipnis Lab, my research focuses on cytokine signaling in the brain and behavior. My current project aims to elucidate the role of IL-1β signaling in sickness behavior and the contribution of meningeal lymphatic drainage to behavioral output.
