About Me


Hello! My name is Phoebe and I am a current undergraduate student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill working towards a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a Bachelor of Arts in Biology, with a minor in Medical Anthropology.

I started editing Wikipedia and Wikiversity through the UNC-CH chapter of Helping Give Away Psychological Science (HGAPS) under the guidance of Dr. Eric Youngstrom, Ph.D. Dr. Youngstrom specializes in bipolar disorder, sleep, and evidence-based assessment (EBA). Dr. Youngstrom started editing Wikipedia as a way to disseminate scholarly psychological information about Evidenced-Based Assessment to the general public and clinicians. I am the current President of the Undergraduate chapter of HGAPS UNC-CH. Through this role, I have edited a variety of Wiki articles relating to psychological science and worked to close a number of Wiki rapid grants in addition to fulfilling my administrative role within the organization.

In addition to my work with HGAPS, I am the current Vice President of the UNC-CH chapter of Students for Rare, an undergraduate organization affiliated with the National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD) dedicated to spreading information about the pathology, research, and treatment directions in the field of rare disease study. I completed the 2022 Summer Scholars program through the Wake Forest Institute of Regenerative Medicine where I will study in the lab of Dr. Vijay Gorantla, M.D. Ph.D. Dr. Gorantla specializes in upper extremity transplantation.
