Research Description

My research focuses on using the pig as a biomedical animal model to study how nutrition impacts neurodevelopment. My work utilizes magnetic resonance imaging techniques to better understand the macrostructural and microstructural changes in the developing brain.


I earned a BS in Biology and minored in Neuroscience at Loyola University in Chicago. I am currently pursuing a PhD in Neuroscience at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
