Position title: Undergraduate Research Assistant
I am an undergraduate student studying Neurobiology with a plan to attend medical school in the future. In the BHSL I work with Ellen Snodgrass and Kayla Kristensen on the Adults with Down Syndrome project. The research looks at how the participants are able to benefit from binaural cues to understand speech in a variety of conditions. We also administer several standardized tests to analyze how their hearing abilities may be impacting their everyday lives. I have enjoyed getting to know this great population and I am excited to see where the research will continue to go.
