Sharon Bade Shrestha is a rising senior pursuing a major in human biology and a minor in psychology. She is fascinated by the human mind and its correlations with brain morphology, activity, and function. This summer she continues her work in Dr. Allan Reiss's lab, CIBSR, where she investigates morphological and activity based differences in developing brains with Fragile X and Turner syndromes along with social and behavioral measures of development. Sharon is a self-proclaimed lover of the outdoors and loves hiking, camping, and a general appreciation of our beautiful planet.
