Andrea Ovalle is a neuroscience major at Smith College in Northampton, MA. She is from Colombia, South America but made the U.S her new home eight years ago. She became interested in Biostatistics and data science the moment she realized that becoming a skilled statistician would allow her to better understand patterns in neurobiological systems; patterns that could be highly important to understand and improve the way prevention and diagnosis of neurodegenerative diseases is currently approached. Andrea is in her senior year at Smith College and after graduation she hopes to pursue a post-baccalaureate in biostatistics. Eventually, she would like to pursue a master’s degree in the field of neuroscience.
