Hi everyone, my name's Alex Loia, and I'm a rising sophomore at Stanford planning to study biocomputation. I grew up in Montana before graduating from the Liberal Arts and Science Academy in Austin, TX where I dug deep into biotech and computer science. I love scuba diving, snowboarding, flying planes, and coding into the late hours of the night :). You can check me out on Instagram (@alexdloia) and/or LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/in/alexdloia/). Excited to help out in any way I can!
Hello, my name is Kale, and I am a rising junior at Johns Hopkins University studying neuroscience. I conduct human motor learning research in Dr. Pablo Celnik’s Human Brain Physiology Laboratory and analyze the effects of traumatic brain injury on the C. elegans connectome at JHU/APL. I co-founded and run Demystify College, an online college consulting firm that aims at connecting high school students with our undergraduate consultants. Most importantly, I am an advocate for disability rights and representation in STEM and medicine and share my experiences as a quadriplegic on my social media platforms
