Taylor Buscemi

Hello! My name is Taylor Buscemi. I am a junior, in Calhoun, majoring in Psychology and pursuing the neuroscience track (I’m also premed). Born and raised in the suburbs of North Carolina, I transferred to Yale from UNC Chapel Hill.  On Yale’s campus, I am an active member of the Calhoun College Council and I conduct psychology research for the Motivated Cognition and Aging Brain Lab. I am also the Director of Central Operations for the Ivy Council, a non-profit organization that fosters student leadership across the Ivy League.  In my free time, I enjoy cooking, yoga, traveling, and photography.
