Lab Mom and Firefighter
I graduated from Washington University in 2018 where I majored in neuroscience and minored in music and biomedical physics. I am an aspiring physician-scientist and am currently applying to MD/PhD programs. I am currently studying how somatosensory circuits are wired. Outside of lab, I love to do yoga, play the piano and the flute, and make fermented food.
I earned a B.S. degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences from Purdue University in 2006, and my Ph.D. in Pharmacology and Biological Chemistry from Northwestern University in 2012. My current research is focused on understanding the molecular processes that wire somatosensory circuits, the development of new optogenetic tools, and advancing approaches to use human nervous system tissue in basic science research.

WashU BME - Visiting PhD student
Evelyn grew up in San Diego, California, and graduated from San Diego State University with a BA in psychology in 2017. She is currently a Premedical Postbac student here at Washington University St. Louis. When she has free time, you can find her going on adventures outdoors, traveling, or finding cool new eateries.
Phuong graduated from UCLA with a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry. Her interest in biomedical research led her to Dr. Gereau lab, where she hopes to gain more knowledge on the biological and physiological aspect of pain study. In her free time, she likes to play guitar, hike, and assemble Jigsaw puzzles.
I am currently in the Post baccalaureate Premedical program here at Washington University because of my interest in becoming a physician. I graduated from The College of St. Rose with a Bachelors in Biology. I am all the way from Brooklyn, NYC (The Big Apple) and enjoy many hobbies such as cooking, reading, and watching mystery movies.
Bethany graduated with a BS in Biology with a psychology minor from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. She then went on to complete a master's degree in Science Education at the University of Central Florida and worked as a high school and middle school biology/life sciences educator. A career changer, she came to WashU as a pre-med post-baccalaureate student with the goal of applying to medical school. Her interests include singing, karaoke, playing piano, reading, and spending quality time with family and friends whenever time allows.
I am an undergraduate student at Washington University in St. Louis majoring Philosophy-Neuroscience-Psychology on the Cognitive Neuroscience track. My hobbies include dancing, reading, and cooking
I am currently an undergraduate researcher studying at Washington University in St. Louis with goals of becoming a physician. My research interests lie primarily in tracing neural pathways relevant in behavior. Outside of the lab, I enjoy movie watching, breakdancing, and playing the ukulele.
Sienna Sewell is a junior at Washington University in St. Louis studying Global Health and Biology. Her research focuses on the intersection of pain and stress in mouse models of bladder pain. Outside of the lab, Sienna loves to sing, read, and spend time outside.
Paulome Srivastava is currently a senior at Washington University in St. Louis, finishing a bachelor's degree in Biology. Her research focuses mainly on mouse models of interstitial cystitis. Outside of the lab, Paulome enjoys spending time hiking, camping, and rock climbing.
