Chandler is a 3rd year graduate student in the Program in Neuroscience here at the University of Maryland Baltimore. She received her BS in Biology and BA in Psychology from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill in 2009.

Research Interests:

Chandler's primary research interest is MRI of mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) with a focus on functional connectivity analysis using resting state fMRI as well as task-based fMRI. She is concentrating on how functional connectivity changes throughout recovery of TBI and how these changes relate to deficits in cognitive functioning.
