Dani Torvalds first came to New Orleans in 2016 as a Tulane undergrad. She majored in Neuroscience and Psychology with a minor in Anthropology. Throughout her undergrad years, she worked as a gymnastics coach, daycare worker, and research assistant. Following the end of the research project, she wrote and defended a Neuroscience honors thesis titled “The Effect of Viral Vectors within the Postrhinal Cortex on Visual Discrimination Learning on Rats.” She learned about Pathologists’ Assistants during her anatomy class, and immediately became hooked. Her favorite muscle and bone are the gracilis and scapula, respectively. While not studying for her classes, she plans to eat at as many NOLA restaurants as possible and read books while riding on the streetcar.
