Nyah is a fourth-year undergraduate student here at Vanderbilt University who joined the Peck Lab in the Spring of 2021. Originally from Michigan, Nyah came to Nashville to pursue a higher education that would prep her for entering the medical field. Majoring in Medicine, Health, and Society, she plans on attending Diagnostic Medical Sonography school after graduation to become a registered Sonographer. Inspired by a personal experience with a family member with Heterotopic Ossification, Nyah joined the Peck Lab with the goal of learning more and quickly became interested in the other various projects in the lab, including research involving neurodegenerative diseases and their effects on bone health. Outside of the lab, Nyah enjoys working out, trying new things, and spending time with her puppy, friends, and family.
