Current Lab Members:
I am a second year student at Rhodes College. Although I have not declared a major yet, my interest in Neuroscience led me to start working with Dr. Haberman in the Visual Cognition Lab my first semester at Rhodes. I’m currently working on a project with Swati that measures the precision of ensemble information with the absence of stimuli. In addition to working in the Visual Cognition Lab, I spend my time volunteering at St. Jude where I work the Happy Cart which gives the patients the opportunity to get toys and games. I’m also involved in the Food Recovery Network, a club that recovers excess food waste from dining halls and provides it to soup kitchens; GlobeMed, which aims to improve the lives of those in poverty; and Active Minds, a club that bring mental health awareness. I also enjoy photography in my free time. After graduating from Rhodes, I hope to work in the medical field either as a physician or a researcher.
I am a Junior Neuroscience and Creative Writing double major. With an interest in visual cognition, I joined Dr. Haberman’s research team this fall. I also work in the Rhodes athletic department and am the Vice-President and a captain of the Rhodes Ultimate Frisbee Team. In my free time I like to write fiction and design board games. After graduating from Rhodes I plan to pursue a graduate degree in Neuroscience.
I am a Sophomore at Rhodes College. I am currently undeclared, but I plan to major in both Neuroscience and Computer Science. This fall I am joining Dr. Haberman’s lab, which combines my academic interests by conducting neuroscience research through experiments coded in Matlab. I am also a peer tutor for the intro biology course. In my free time, I enjoy playing ultimate frisbee and piano. After graduating from Rhodes, I plan to attend medical school and become a physician or pursue an MD-PhD and continue doing neuroscience research.
I’m a junior Neuroscience major and Philosophy minor. I really enjoy the different perspectives these two fields bring to questions of the mind, such as consciousness. I joined Dr. Haberman’s lab this past summer. I am currently working on a project that allows for a more precise assessment of ensemble representation abilities. I hope to start another project soon, focusing on eye tracking. I run Varsity Cross-Country in the fall semester and I run Varsity Track & Field in the spring semester. I am a long-distance runner and compete in events such as the 5K and 10K. In both cross-country and track we are defending SAA Conference Champions. I am an active member of Kappa Delta sorority where I hold a position in the Girl Scouts philanthropy committee. I also have an on campus job in the Athletics Building. When I am home in Atlanta, I babysit and also volunteer as a camp counselor for children with Type 1 Diabetes. After graduation, I plan to either attend nursing school to become a nurse practitioner or attend graduate school to continue neuroscience research.
