About Katie...


Biography:
I grew up in Bremerton, WA and did running start during high school. I actually got my associates in arts and science before I graduated from high school! I came to WSU and it took me three years to complete the undergraduate Neuroscience program, but during my last year I started my graduate work early.
 
Undergraduate Education:
B.S., Washington State University (Neuroscience).
A.A.S., Olympic College.
 
Current research topic:
My thesis will utilize optogenetics to specially activate glial cells and characterize changes in state oscillations and gene expression that we can hopefully relate back to whole animal sleep. We call it “sleep-in-a-dish”.
 
Major Advisor:
Dr. James Krueger

Year entered PhD Program:
2009
