Rui is a graduate student and Institute of Mind and Biology fellow working with Dr. Leslie Kay. She graduated from University of California, Los Angeles in 2015 with a B.S. in Psychobiology and a minor in Philosophy.

She is interested in using electrophysiological recordings in the olfactory system to explore the underlying neural representations of olfactory hedonics.
