Sori is a third-year Ph.D. student in the Psychology & Neuroscience Joint Degree Program. As an NSF GRFP fellow, she uses neuroimaging, eye-tracking, and behavioral experiments to explore the impact of experiences on human cognition and perception across different age groups. She is interested in applying her skillsets to an industry setting.

Fred d'Oleire Uquillas
Fred is a Presidential Fellow and Ph.D. student in the Department of Neuroscience at Princeton University. He leads the pro-bono consulting group for new ventures and is in charge of organization and management of student teams for strategy and operations services for PUGCC partners and clients. His research focuses on large scale human brain networks. His contributions have been featured in CNN, Forbes Magazine, Discovery Channel DNews, American Broadcasting Company (ABC) and the L.A. Times. In his free time, Fred enjoys cooking and learning new recipes and cuisines. He's not a very good baker, however.
Secretary & Treasurer
Amy is a 2nd year PhD candidate in the Chemistry department. Her current research focuses on the optimization and investigation of a novel reaction pathway that enables the formation of bond connections essential to pharmaceutically relevant therapeutics. Prior to Princeton, Amy grew up in New York City and graduated from Yale University. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, cooking and baking, staying active, and spending time with friends and family.
Vice President of Strategy
Tanner was born and raised in Orlando, FL, and is a first-generation college student. He has a BS in biochemistry with a minor in mathematics from Northeastern University. While in college, he completed a 6-month internship at Moderna Therapeutics studying RNA biochemistry. He also interned at Warp Drive Bio (now owned by Revolution Medicines) studying protein-protein interactions. In addition, he has academic research experience in molecular biology and computational chemistry. At Princeton, he is a member of the Kleiner lab in the Department of Chemistry, which focuses on the study of mRNA modifications (among other things) – a field known as epitranscriptomics.
Some of Tanner's hobbies include reading nonfiction, traveling with his girlfriend and family, exercising, cooking, gardening, and investing. After he finishes his Ph.D., he wants to be a scientist or business executive in the biopharmaceutical industry or start his own company.
Vice President of Outreach
Izzy is a third-year Ph.D. candidate in the Chemistry Department. As a member of the Doyle group at Princeton, she studies photoredox catalysis to enable the development of unique chemical transformations and the synthesis of pharmaceutically relevant compounds. Izzy is a native of Armonk, N.Y., and is a graduate of Middlebury College where she conducted research with Professor Richard Bunt. After college, Izzy spent a year at the National Institutes of Health with Dr. James Inglese and Dr. Ganesha Bantukallu, where she synthesized chemical probes for the treatment of parasitic infections. Outside of lab, Izzy enjoys watching baseball, running, hiking, and cooking.
