Rosy is an international transfer student majoring in biology. After her undergraduate studies, she wants to pursue an MD/PhD and hopes to get involved in neurosciences research. She is currently working in the Stanford Cognitive and Systems Neuroscience Laboratory under the guidance of Dr. Vinod Menon, Dr. Lucina Uddin, and Dr. Kaustubh Supekar. They are investigating the neural correlates of reading abilities in school-age male and female children for the first time. Rosy thanks the Bio-X program for giving her the wonderful opportunity to work in the lab this summer.
