- Meet the team -
Dorothy Tung "Hi NSCSAS! My name is Dorothy, and I am a senior on the neuroscience track with an emphasis in cognition. I am also minoring in biochemistry and music performance. If I’m not in class, you can find me pipetting in the McKay Lab, an ophthalmology lab that investigates age-related macular degeneration. Outside of academics, I love bowling, hiking, trying out new restaurants, and watching basketball (Go Suns!). If you have any questions, concerns, or need someone to talk to, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me! Looking forward to meeting you all!"
"Hey everyone! I’m Cam and I’m a junior on the neuroscience track with an emphasis in neurobiology. I minor in Biochemistry, Emergency Medical Services, and Spanish. I’m an undergraduate research assistant in the Gothard Lab and primarily assist in the “Social Status & Facial Expression” project. I love collecting music posters, competing in three fantasy football leagues, and playing chess. If there’s one thing you remember from my bio, buy pepper gel for your protection. See you all soon!"
“Hi everyone! My name is Surya and I’m a junior on the neuroscience track with an emphasis in language and communication science. I’m also majoring in Spanish. I am a part of the NET (neuroscience of emotion and thought) Lab and am currently working on a creativity study. I love to paint, play piano, hike, and cook (but have a very limited repertoire). I’m excited to meet and talk with you all!"
"Hey y’all! My name is Farah, and I am a junior on the Neuroscience track with an emphasis on Cognition. I am minoring in Biochemistry and I am also a part of NSCS Ambassadors. In my free time, I like to hike, play soccer, hang out with friends, and try new air fryer recipes! Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or if you have any delicious air fryer recipes haha:)"
"What’s up guys! My name is Brandon and I’m a junior on the Neuroscience track with an emphasis in neurobiology. I am a double major with Computer Science and I have a minor in Biochemistry. I work in the Department of Ophthalmology and Vision Sciences with Dorothy and Dr. Brian S. McKay where we study mechanisms of age-related macular degeneration. I really enjoy volunteering at my church, photography, playing/watching basketball and going to the gym - if you see me at the rec say hi!! I can’t wait to meet all of you and to make this a memorable year!"
"Hello NSCSAS! My name is Darrell and I am a junior on the neuroscience track with an emphasis in neurobiology. I am minoring in Biochemistry and Theatre Arts and I am involved in the NET lab overseeing the SONA studies. I like to read, listen to music, and swim. You can reach out to me with any questions or concerns and I am excited to meet you all this semester!"
"Hello everyone! I'm Andrew. I'm a sophomore in the NSCS major on the neuroscience track with potentially an emphasis in neurobiology. I am also double majoring in Biochemistry and minoring in Special Education and Rehabilitation. I am from southern California, so I love taking drives along the beach blasting music with friends. I'm involved in a research lab that is exploring neuroimaging of both teens with Down syndrome and typically developing teens. I am so excited for this year in NSCSAS, and I hope you all are too!"
"Hi everyone! My name is Rachel and I’m a sophomore on the Neuroscience track with an emphasis in cognition. I am also minoring in theatre arts for acting. I love all things science and art-related. I’m most passionate about neurological disease and psychological trauma therapy. In my free time, I love drawing, painting, cooking, reading, and hanging out with my cat. I’m looking forward to learning lots on the board and I hope to become a helpful asset to the NSCS student body!"
