As a neuroscience major, I decided to study the brain, mind, and behavior because it combined the fields that I am most fascinated with. I conducted my senior thesis research in biology and neuroscience in Dr. Michelle Hastings’ lab at RFUMS on the topic of mRNA splicing and microRNA biogenesis. Ultimately, I plan to have a career in public health research, and my experiences here at Lake Forest have helped me foster that decision. The Lake Forest College community offers so many wonderful opportunities, but most importantly, support from peers and professors.
