Hello! My name is Kavya Bhaskaran and I am a class of 2023 undergraduate at UCI. I am a Human Biology Major. I entered the Human Biology Major to get more of an understanding how human body diseases interact with other organ systems, including the beloved brain which is my favorite. I joined the Beier lab because I have a keen interest on neuroplasticity and drug addiction within the brain. I wanted to go more in depth with how experiments work within this realm of neurobiology. Regarding my future, I am interested in attending PA school or pursuing a Master’s within neurobiology. During my free time outside of research and school I like to play tennis, travel, laugh with my friends and family, eat Indian food, and play with my doggos.
