Kate is a fourth-year honors student pursuing a B.S. in Psychological & Brain Sciences at the University of California, Santa Barbara. She's always had an interest in behavior and cognition, but didn't understand the key roles hormones play in these areas until taking Introduction to Biopsychology. It was in this class where she was introduced to Dr. Jacobs's lab, and immediately became interested in joining after seeing how much of the lab's research focuses specifically on women's health. Kate loves being able to play a small role in discovering new and important aspects of women's behavior and cognition through her position as a research assistant. After graduation, she hopes to gain experience in the healthcare field with the goal of applying to Physician Assistant programs. Kate loves watching Netflix shows with her housemates, reading, and frequenting local coffee shops.
