Credentials: BS, MPA

Position title: Graduate Student, Neuroscience and Public Policy

Grace graduated with her Bachelor’s degree in Neuroscience in 2017 at UW-Madison where she studied behavioral and neurological mechanisms of fraction learning in children. She is currently a graduate student in the Neuroscience and Public Policy program where she has finished her Master’s in Public Affairs degree and is still pursuing her Ph.D. in Neuroscience. Her dissertation work focuses on computation neuroimaging looking at parent-child interactions and their effect on child brain development. She hopes to use the knowledge learned from the lab to translate into policy solutions and to bridge neuroscience and public policy to help children recover from mental illness. In addition to science, Grace enjoys playing volleyball, soccer, knitting, and hiking.
