Eliza White studies Neuroscience and Mathematics at Brigham Young University. In the coming years, she hopes to earn a PhD in Computational Neuroscience. From there, she hopes to conduct research on the brain using mathematical and other scientific techniques. Her interest in neuroscience stems in part from her own brain injury as well as the other autoimmune diseases that affect her immediate and extended family members. Outside of schooling, Eliza loves to participate in musical theatre as well as singing, playing the guitar, watching Star Wars, exercising, cleaning, and cooking.
