Meredith Schmehl
Student

Ph.D. Student in Neurobiology, 2018-Present
I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Neurobiology , advised by Dr. Jennifer Groh .  I completed my undergraduate training at Carnegie Mellon University , where I earned dual Bachelors of Science in Neurobiology and Cognitive Psychology.  My research interests focus on sensory processing and multisensory integration in the visual and auditory systems.

Outside of my research, I am also actively involved in science communication through outreach, writing, and policy.  I have been selected as the 2018 National Outstanding Member of the Year by Nu Rho Psi , the national neuroscience honor society, in recognition of my leadership and service as president of the Theta in PA chapter of Nu Rho Psi at Carnegie Mellon.  This award recognizes my "significant contributions to the field of neuroscience" including "leadership and service efforts in outreach, education, and public policy," particularly my leadership in activities that engaged K-12 children in STEM.  Building off of these efforts from my undergraduate years, I plan to build a career focused on fostering a greater appreciation for and understanding of science and its importance in society, advocating for sustained funding for scientific research, and supporting diverse and inclusive practices in higher education.
