Christienne Gonzales Damatac received bachelor’s degrees in both Biology and in Public Health from the Macaulay Honors College at the City University of New York (Brooklyn). She then went on to graduate with a master’s degree in Biomedical Science with a focus in Neuroscience from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. She is currently a PhD candidate in the Statistical Imaging Neuroscience group at the Donders Centre for Cognitive Neuroimaging. Her project focuses on longitudinally characterizing the course of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) through predictive genetic and neuroimaging markers that may determine the remission versus persistence of ADHD symptoms in patients. When she’s not checking out brains, Christienne enjoys traveling near and far, doodling in her sketchbook, and dancing (in a bar and à la barre).
