Kiana Angela Macharia

Kiana Angela is a third-year undergraduate student at Washington University in St. Louis studying Philosophy, Neuroscience, and Psychology (PNP) and Writing. She joined the Ances Lab in the Fall of 2022 and is currently focused on how neuroimaging methods (like structural and functional MRI) can be used to observe the development of AD biomarkers in specific populations. Her interest in the changing brain has motivated her to pursue medical school after the completion of her undergraduate studies. Outside of lab, Kiana Angela enjoys volunteering on WashU’s Emergency Support Team as an EMT, listening to music, and writing poetry.
