Degrees:Ph.D Candidate

Marina is a PhD candidate in Dr. Kristin Connor’s lab at Carleton University, where she began her graduate studies after receiving her BSc in Neuroscience at Carleton in 2017. Her research investigates the role of maternal nutrition and the placenta in early life programming of neurodevelopment and growth, with a focus on pregnancies complicated by maternal HIV infection or fetal spina bifida. Specifically, she is interested in understanding how alterations in placental development and function in these pregnancies may affect postnatal growth and neurodevelopmental trajectories.
