Who Am I?

Farah earned a B.S. in Psychology from Northeastern University In May 2013. At Northeastern, Farah completed experiential learning co-ops at Newton Public School as a teacher?s assistant and as a research study intern with Dr. Nadine Gaab in the Gaab Lab at Boston Children?s Hospital examining family history differences of prereaders with and without a familial risk for developing dyslexia. Farah began working at Olin in August 2013 as a research assistant on the Brain Alcohol and College Students (BARCS) study.
