Picture of Jesus Madrid

Brief Biographical Sketch:

I'm a neuroscience PhD student at Stanford University. My passion in research involves understanding how mammals are influenced by their early life social environment. In particular I am fascinated by maternal behavior and the profound programmatic effects that natural variation in it can have on brain development.

In my free time you can find me enjoying the the outdoors or being an avid urban explorer of San Francisco.
