Melanie (Duke ’20) is a Neuroscience and Gender, Sexuality and Feminist Studies double major. She is interested on the intersection between neuroscience and sexuality/gender studies, as well as in how neurological interventions can be used to treat medical conditions and improve overall health across age groups.
Lucy (Duke '20) is a Biology major with a minor in Chemistry. She is interested in behavioral science approaches to marketing, infectious disease prevention and treatment, and forensic pathology.
Carlton (Duke '20) is a Neuroscience major with minors in Chemistry and Psychology. He is interested in aging and neurological disorders and the development of interventions.
Aiyanna (Duke ‘20) is a Psychology major pursuing certificates in Civic Engagement & Social Change and Markets & Management. She is interested in neuroeconomics, consumer psychology, and social enterprise.
James (Duke '20) is a Chemistry major pursuing a certificate in Decision Sciences. He is interested in how the mechanisms of motivation and decision making can be applied to improve our efficiency, well-being, and health.
Sophie (Duke ’20) is a Psychology major with a minor in Political Science. She is interested in prenatal and early life development, and the factors that can affect children’s development in these critical years; she is also interested in the study of aging and neurodegenerative disorders. She hopes to explore different approaches of bridging our understanding of these two areas of interest.
