Inez received her B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology in 2010. After completing research projects in the Applied Physiology Lab at Georgia Tech and the Cellular Biology Lab at Emory University, she continued her studies at the Interdepartmental Neuroscience Program at University of California Irvine. She completed her doctorate training under Dr. Ana Solodkin in the Brain Circuits Lab in 2016. Her dissertation focused on identifying biomarkers of neurological disease, using Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 6 and Chronic Ischemic Stroke as models. This work heavily involved a novel computational modeling platform, The Virtual Brain, which was used to model individualized brain activity.
Following completion of her degree, Inez pursued post-doctoral training under Dr. Steve Small. Her project focuses on mild traumatic brain injury in collegiate athletes, its effects on the brain both structurally and functionally, and behavioral effects.
