Annette Marín is a senior at Florida State University pursuing a Bachelors of Science in Computer Engineering along with minors in Computer Science and Mathematics. She is starting her second summer of working in Dr. Cocroft’s lab as part of the NSF REU Computational Neuroscience research program. Her research involves measuring the change in surface potential on the leaves of Arabidopsis thaliana in response to stimuli. Because of this REU and the experience of working in the Cocroft lab, she decided that after her undergraduate studies, she wants to pursue a PhD in either Neuroscience or Artificial Intelligence, hopefully in the Pacific Northwest, and obtain her engineering licenses.
When she’s not doing research or going to school, she’s either playing around with photography, traveling, exploring new coffee shops, or binge watching one of her favorite shows on Netflix.
De’Asha Moore is a senior at Mount Saint Mary’s University in Los Angeles earning a Bachelors of Science in Biology. This is her first year working in Dr. Cocroft’s lab as part of the NSF REU Computational Neuroscience research program. After graduating, she plans to teach science for a middle school. Her current hobbies are yoga, meditation, shopping, and traveling.
