My name is Sree Gogineni, and I am a junior from Edison, New Jersey. I am currently majoring in Neuroscience with minors in Medical Anthropology and Chemistry. Although I had no sense of direction as a first-year, I learned throughout the courses offered at UNC that I am particularly interested in the functions of the human brain and how it affects the lives of individuals, both healthy and those with chronic illnesses. I am currently a Gil Intern in cognitive neuroscience working at the Neurocognition and Imaging Lab. I am also a research assistant at the Carolina Affective Science Lab (CASL) where we analyze how people experience emotion in connection with our bodies and the neurophysiology contributing to these emotional experiences. Aside from neuropsychology research, I have special interests in Bollywood dancing and volunteering in non-profit organizations such as Healthy Hands Initiative, UNICEF, and Healing in Motion. In the future, I hope to combine my interests in service and neuroscience within the medical field and serve as a physician in medically underserved areas. If you’re interested in research, public service, medical school, or finding your path here at UNC, feel free to reach out any time, I would love to chat with you!
