Jennifer Lawlor, PhD   Fondation Fyssen Postdoctoral Fellow jlawler3@jhu.edu   Jennifer grew up in Paris, France and received her PhD in Neuroscience from the Ecole Normale Supérieure working with Shihab Shamma and Yves Boubenec. Her work focused on the cortical representation of changes in complex, cluttered auditory scenes along the auditory pathway, She has joined the Kuchibholta Lab as well as the JHU Batlab to develop 2-photon calcium imaging in bats and study neural circuits underlying learning of flexible, context-dependent behaviors. Outside of the lab, she enjoys spending time with friends, curling up with a good book, and traveling.

Céline Drieu, PhD   Kavli Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellow cdrieu1@jhu.edu   Céline grew up in a small city next to Paris, France before going up to the capital where she received her PhD in Neuroscience from the University Pierre and Marie Curie. Her PhD works, performed in the lab of Michaël Zugaro at the Collège de France, focused on the study of hippocampal cell assembly sequences in memory formation and consolidation in freely behaving rats. She has crossed the ocean to study cortical and subcortical computations underlying context-dependent learning. She is mentored by Dr. Patricia Janak as part of the Kavli Fellowship. Out of the lab, she likes to play tennis, hike and climb, discover good places to eat, and traveling.

Fangchen Zhu PBS Doctoral Student fzhu7@jhu.edu   Fangchen is from sunny Singapore where he graduated from Yale-NUS College with a B.Sc. (Honours) in Life Sciences with a minor in Mathematical, Computational and Statistical Sciences. He is interested in understanding the neural circuits underlying contextual learning in mice. In his free time, he can be found learning sports analytics and developing a sophisticated taste in bad movies.

Sydney Sappenfield Undergraduate Researcher ssappen1@jhu.edu   Sydney was born and raised in Vail, Colorado. She left the mountains to pursue an undergraduate degree in Cognitive Science. She is interested in the neural mechanisms of learning and memory and how they effect behavior. In the lab, she will be working on projects which investigate context specific firing patterns in the auditory cortex and the role of the hippocampus in the encoding this information. In her spare time, Sydney enjoys mountain biking, backpacking, skiing, climbing and getting cozy with a good book or movie.
