My name is Monica Duran and I am a fourth year MD-PhD student. After completing the first 3 years of medical school, I joined the Neuroscience Training Program and the Movement and Brain Development Lab for my PhD training. I am interested in applying novel neuroimaging techniques and behavioral measures to understand the relationship between ASD features and brain structure/development. I am excited to continue my career as a neuroscientist and future child neurologist! Outside of the lab I enjoy working out, kiteboarding, snowboarding, and playing pickleball.
