PhD Student

University of Victoria

Applied (Clinical and Engineering Applications)

I am in the second year of my doctoral degree at the University of Victoria majoring in clinical neuropsychology. I completed my Master's of Science in Clinical Neuropsychology also at the University of Victoria in the summer of 2021. My interests are primarily in the effects of exercise and sports concussions on executive function, especially with my own personal experience as a university athlete (UNBC Timberwolves Women’s soccer). I hope to examine the role of estrogen and the menstrual cycle in elite female athletes' cognitive functioning throughout a season.

Area of Research Expertise
