Emma is a master’s student in the Interdisciplinary Toxicology Program studying the relationship between traumatic brain injury (TBI) severity and pathology and motor responses.
Emma received a B.S.A. in Biological Sciences from the University of Georgia. In the lab, her research focuses on evaluating how novel therapeutics and differences in traumatic brain injury (TBI) pathophysiology affect motor function recovery in the piglet TBI model. She utilizes computational gait analysis approaches to collect and analyze spatiotemporal gait data to evaluate key injury and recovery motor function variables. When she is not in the lab, Emma enjoys cooking, playing with her dog, and visiting her family.
