Hello! My name is Allana, and I am currently studying Cognitive Science at the University of California, Irvine. I joined Beier Lab during the fall quarter of 2021 in hopes of gaining experience working in a professional lab setting as well as learning more about neurodegenerative diseases and their effects. I am very passionate about the brain and neuroscience and I have loved getting to be a part of its research. In the future, I hope to get into medical school and possibly go into surgery or psychiatry.
