Baker, Christa

Dr. Christa Baker is a Jane Coffin Childs postdoc fellow in the lab of Dr. Mala Murthy at Princeton University, where she studies neural circuits underlying acoustic communication in Drosophila. During her PhD at Washington University in St. Louis in the lab of Dr. Bruce Carlson, she investigated central and peripheral mechanisms of temporal coding in weakly electric fishes. Her work combines calcium imaging, electrophysiology, connectomics, animal behavior, computational modeling, and comparative approaches to reveal basic principles of neural coding.
