How did you choose your area of study?

”As a neuroscience major, I studied the connections between brain, mind and behavior because I was fascinated by this topic and want to know as much as possible about it! Perhaps, in the future, my knowledge will help me in deciphering at least one of the neurological diseases and if not find a cure for it, then at least help the patients as much as possible. What I most enjoyed about studying at Lake Forest College are the vast resources that the school provides, countless opportunities that are available, and fantastic staff that are always there for the students. I conducted my senior thesis research in biology and neuroscience in Dr. Shubhik DebBurman’s Parkinson’s Disease lab on a topic I began as a Richter Scholar. My career plan is to either go to medical school or do MD/PhD.”
