Julia Ebert, S’15, behavioral neuroscience
Upon arriving on campus as a National Merit Scholar, Julia channeled her talents and passion into championing the field of
science to others. In her first year, she joined Northeastern’s PRISM (Proactive Recruitment in Introductory Science and Mathematics) program, and has continued as a mentor ever since. She has also been a research assistant in the Northeastern University Action Lab—both as a volunteer and then as a co-op responsible for a study on human motor control. She plans to pursue a PhD in neuroscience.
