Ezinne Oguguo

Ezinne Oguguo, while an undergraduate Biological Sciences major, Computer Science minor, Meyerhoff Scholar (M31), HHMI Research Scholar and NIGMS/NIH URISE Scholar at the University of Maryland Baltimore County (class of 2023), worked as a summer student in the Synthetic Neurobiology group on the biomining project, seeking new strategies to further organ preservation.  Her interests included interfacing computational neuroscience, machine learning, and biological engineering to gain a more in-depth understanding of the neural networks of the brain and how findings could lead to the discovery of therapeutic strategies and cures for neurological and psychological disorders. In her free time, she enjoys playing piano and interacting with others. She worked with Dr. Ed Boyden during her summer at MIT as a part of the MSRPBio Program, gaining research experience in neuro- and bio-engineering.
