Alleyna Martes

(Brumely Lab) I am in my third year as a psychology major at ISU. I am interested in neuroscience and I hope to continue my education in experimental psychology after I graduate next semester. I love rock climbing, reading (mostly Harry Potter), hiking, and anything involving animals, especially my cats. I have recently discovered my love for research and I plan to continue studying and learning for as long as I can.
