Naomi Wallace, B.S.

I earned my BS in Psychology with a concentration in Cognitive Neuroscience from the University of Denver in 2015. My undergraduate research examined the relationships between socioeconomic status, sleep, and mental health in children. Since I joined the Karatsoreos Lab in 2016, I have been studying the effects of aging and circadian disruption on brain metabolism using cutting-edge biosensors that allow for real-time in vivo recording from the brains of freely-behaving mice. My next project will be examining the long-term effects of circadian disruption on the developing brain. Specifically, I will be studying changes to brain metabolism, dendritic morphology, and myelination after circadian disruption during the perinatal or adolescent period. Outside the lab, I enjoy cooking, playing the saxophone, and spending time with my pets. I am also very committed to outreach and scientific communication, and increasing diversity and inclusivity in science.
