Gwyneth received her B.S. in Organismic and Evolutionary Biology from Harvard and her PhD. in Bioengineering from Caltech. She has been a Group Leader at Janelia since 2010. Her lab is interested in simple perceptual decision-making and uses the Drosophila escape response as a model system. Her lab combines high-throughput, high-resolution behavioral quantification with genetic, electrophysiological, and functional imaging techniques to assess the neural underpinnings of behavior in ecologically relevant situations.
