Saba Chowdhury received her BS in neuroscience from the University of Texas and is currently completing her MPH in epidemiology at the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health. Prior to joining NYSPI and pursuing her master’s degree, Saba worked as a research assistant at Harvard Medical School. There, she studied the role of the immune system in the progression of Alzheimer's disease and contributed as a second author to a publication in Science: Translational Medicine. Saba is currently completing her thesis on the gender differences in PTSD in child and adolescent survivors after a natural disaster. As a data analyst for Dr. Gould, she will help conduct analyses for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline project. Saba developed a strong interest in neuroscience and psychiatry after witnessing a close family member suffer with mental illness when she was in high school. She hopes to make a positive impact on mental health awareness and suicide prevention through the media of academic research and the arts.
