Research Interests: My main interests involve computational and cognitive neuroscience, specifically visual and auditory perception, neural networks, and other related topics.
Summer Laboratory: Dr. David Cox
I enjoy spending my mornings at coffee shops reading the news, and my evenings in the library or at home playing guitar. Jazz is one of my biggest passions; some of my favorite composers are Duke Ellington and Antonio Carlos Jobim. My research interests include computational biology and bioinformatics with applications in systems and synthetic biology.

Hi, my name is Jake, I grew up in a very small town which probably contributes to why I love spending time outdoors. I enjoy exploring the world and hope to one day travel outside of the United States. I also enjoy playing most sports especially football and soccer, spending time with friends and family, and watching football. As you could probably guess, I am an avid Boston sports fan. My research goals are to pursue a Ph.D. in neuroscience after completely my Pharm.D. Ultimately I want to use both degrees to research new drugs to fight epilepsy while also being able to counsel and warn patients of the debilitating side effect prescription drugs can have. My research interests: Drug discovery, specifically drugs to fight infectious diseases and epilepsy.

Research Interests: I’ve dabbled in a few areas of biological research, including x-ray crystallography with a focus in proteins, fruit fly genetics, and microbiology. However, I’m still exploring and looking for my future research focus. Most importantly, I just want to do impactful research that will help build the scientific community while also making a difference in the lives of others.
Summer Laboratory: Dr. Rachelle Gaudet
Raised right outside the greatest city in the world, I have always immersed myself in diverse and enriching learning opportunities. You can usually find me spending my spare time exploring nature on a local trail or strolling through the natural science museum. I make it a point to understand and respect all areas of science, yet biology and in particular the neuroscience has been my immediate fascination. I make it an effort to blend my scientific mind with other interests in my life such as philosophy, politics, and community outreach. I aspire to obtain a PhD in neuroscience and help understand the biological foundations of synaptic plasticity and consciousness. To me, neuroscience is the only science I believe can explain human morality and purpose.
