Eusha Hasan

As a student studying the natural sciences on the premedical track, I am deeply passionate about approaching research problems rigorously, with the ultimate goal of directly affecting patient care. I love studying the biomedical applications of the highly theoretical material I learn in the classroom. As a current joint researcher between two groups, I employ my interest in MRI physics and Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRDs) to obtain crisper, cleaner images of the brains of posthumous ADRDs patients. My path towards my current research interest was nonlinear and full of introspection, and being a mentee in the Research Peer Advising (RPA) program allowed me to narrow my interests and garner support as I explored various disciplines of research. I am excited to bear the RPA torch and share my passion and knowledge to help you explore your potential interest in research! Please feel free to contact me by email.
