Graduate Student

Schnaude Dorizan is a Haitian-born native of Brooklyn, NY. She attended the University of Maryland Baltimore County where she double majored in biology and psychology. After earning her degrees, she went on to complete a 2-year post-baccalaureate program at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx where she investigated the role of the cerebellar-VTA pathway in social behavior. Schnaude is now a 2nd-year graduate student in the Interdepartmental Neuroscience Program at Northwestern University and is a member of both the Disterhoft lab and the lab of Dr. Joel Voss. She is currently working on the facilitation of memory in rabbits, specifically understanding cortical-hippocampal network function and how it may be disrupted during memory. Her hope for the future is to combine her love of science and outreach so that every child is granted the opportunity to learn and explore the world around them. When she isn’t doing science, Schnaude loves to dance, play softball, and watch the original Twilight Zones series.
