Meet Our Peer Advisors ...

Hi! My name is Deepa and I'm a senior double majoring in Neuroscience and Cognitive Science. After graduation, I am planning on pursuing a PhD in Behavioral or Cognitive Neuroscience. I have been involved in research at U of M for 3 years; currently, I'm a member of the Lustig Lab, where we study cognition and aging. I'm also doing an honors thesis in Neuroscience as well! On campus, I'm involved in the Neuroscience Student Association and MDraw. In addition to my school activities, I also enjoy playing the piano and doing calligraphy.

Feel free to stop by during my office hours to talk about neuroscience, doing research, writing an honors thesis, or just to chat!


Hello! My name is Yoav, and I am a senior majoring in Ecology, Evolution, and Biodiversity and minoring in the Environment. I am passionate about understanding ecosystems and have interest in meshing sustainability with human health.

On campus, I do research in a lab studying agricultural weeds and other related plants in an evolutionary and ecological genomics lab. I have also taught a few of the introductory biology courses. I volunteer at the U of M Campus farm and know the local Arboretum and Botanical Gardens well! Off campus, I work part-time as an EMT-B at a local ambulance service.

Please feel free to stop by my peer advising hours. I would be delighted to talk with you about course planning, extracurricular opportunities, the pre-health track, research, or anything biology!
