Natalie joined the lab in May 2016, shortly after graduating from NYU with a B.S. in Neuroscience. Natalie's passion for neuroscience and medicine started during a cell-biology research internship her sophomore year, when she learned about the role of misfolded proteins in neurodegenerative disorders. She was fascinated by how such micro-scale events could have such a profound effect on one's personality and reasoning. Natalie is involved in several projects, including pediatric MS research and tDCS studies. She is excited about the opportunity to learn more about MS and to connect with patients through her research. In her free time, Natalie enjoys ballroom-latin and aerial fabric dancing, rock-climbing, and exploring what the city has to offer, particularly its food.
