Kelly McDaniel, B.S.
I'm a proud native of Atlanta, Georgia. I received my B.S. in neuroscience from Georgia State University, graduating summa cum laude in 2014. I am currently enrolled in the dual degree program at G.S.U., which will allow me to attain my master's degree in December 2015. In the Petrulis lab, I am currently focused on a project investigating GABAergic circuits in relation to sociosexual behavior using a transgenic mouse model. My overall goal is to study how hormones and psychopharmocological drugs affect behavioral outcomes and neural circuitry. I am also interested in the effect of sex differences in all aspects of my research. I am a strong advocate of science outreach in the community, and volunteer as often as possible for science-related events and festivals. In the precious time outside of lab, I keep myself busy with various hobbies. I am an avid musician, soccer player, and trivia aficionado.
