Tara Raam, PhD Hartwell Postdoctoral Fellow tararaam@jhu.edu   Tara grew up in California and graduated from UC San Diego with a B.S. in Physiology and Neuroscience. She then abandoned the beach and purchased her first pair of winter boots in pursuit of a PhD in Neurobiology at Harvard, where she worked on the role of oxytocin signaling in the hippocampus during the formation of social memories under the mentorship of Dr. Amar Sahay. Her focus in the lab will be to understand cortical computations underlying socially-mediated learning. When not in the lab, she likes to spend time outdoors, run, and find good coffee.

Céline Drieu, PhD   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. Out of the lab, she likes to play tennis, hike and climb, discover good places to eat, and traveling.

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.

Kelly Fogelson NIH Prep Scholar kfogels1@jhmi.edu   Kelly is a proud product of the Midwest. Born in Chicago, and raised in Minneapolis. She graduated with a Neuroscience B.S. from the University of Minnesota Twin-Cities. Kelly is keenly interested in how environmental and innate factors shape behavior. She believes that knowing about our own biology is empowering, and hopes to communicate this with scientists and non-scientists alike. Outside lab, Kelly is working on her green thumb and enjoys cooking, hiking, her morning coffee, and writing.

Sarah Elnozahy Undergraduate Researcher   selnoza1@jhu.edu   Sarah grew up in Austin, Texas and is now an undergraduate Computational Neuroscience major at Johns Hopkins University. Her focus in the lab will be in running behavioral experiments, as well as analyzing neural data of mice performing stimulus-action association tasks. She likes to spend her free time playing volleyball and finding the best Tex-Mex in whatever city she is in.
