A Portland native, Lynn came to the Bay Area to attend UC Berkeley. She graduated in May 2016 with a degree in cognitive science and a concentration in cognitive neuroscience. As an undergraduate, she worked in the D’Esposito Lab on a project seeking to understand dopamine’s mediation of cognitive control and the contributions of dopamine deficiency to cognitive deficits in Parkinson’s disease. She interned at the Oregon National Primate Research Center and gathered data on the effect of estrogen replacement therapy in post-menopausal rhesus macaques on spatial memory ability. She currently works with Dr. Bruce Miller and Dr. Howie Rosen to study frontotemporal dementia.

In her free time, Lynn enjoys yoga and exploring the outdoors.
