She also studies how social behaviors are regulated by a combinatorial code of classic neuromodulators and immune-derived cytokines. She received her bachelor’s degree from the University of California at Berkeley, and her Ph.D. from Caltech, where she studied with David Anderson. She was a postdoc in the laboratory of Richard Axel at Columbia University.
