Ann Kennedy

contact: kennedya AT caltech.edu

I received my Ph.D. in Neurobiology and Behavior from Columbia University in 2014, where I modeled learning in two cerebellum-like structures (the electrosensory lobe of the mormyrid electric fish, and the Drosophila mushroom body) under Prof. Larry Abbott. As a postdoc, I'm interested in modeling the interactions between hypothalamic nuclei involved in the control of innate behaviors. I also collaborate with experimentalists in the Anderson lab to help analyze and interpret high-dimensional behavior and calcium imaging datasets.
