Sabrina joined the SCL as an undergraduate volunteer researcher who had an interest in conducting human research. Upon graduating from CU in 2019 with a Bachelor of Arts in Integrative Physiology she worked as a Professional Research Assistant in the lab focused on data collection and data management. She will start school as a graduate student in the fall of 2020 to pursue a Master of Science and she makes a killer cranberry walnut bread to share with her sleep lab pals.
With her B.A. in Cognitive Science from the University of California, Merced, Katrina decided to pursue research in Dr. Rebecca Spencer’s Somneuro Lab at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, where her interest in all things sleep began. As a first year graduate student, she is excited by the interconnectedness of the brain and body and how sleep and circadian rhythms play an important role in overall health, and cognition. In her spare time, you might find her browsing adoptable dogs, or hanging from a large slab of artificial granite
