Natalie Becker

Research Assistant Volunteer

I am a rising senior attending New York University majoring in Neural Science. I have been passionate about undergraduate research and have developed a deep interest in childhood trauma. My research interests include gaining a deeper understanding of how trauma affects the developing brain, starting before birth. "The Boy Who Was Raised As A Dog" by Bruce Perry changed my outlook on childhood trauma and is the reason I am pursuing it today. I joined the Thomason Lab in the summer of 2022 and am a part of the COPE Study on the MRI team. Upon my graduation, I intend to continue childhood trauma research and ultimately serve underrepresented minority communities.
