Kathryn Simone

PhD Candidate

Kathryn studied Electrical Engineering at Memorial University of Newfoundland and completed a Master’s in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Calgary under the supervision of Dr. Kartikeya Murari, where she developed sensitive instrumentation for low-power fiber photometry for behavioral neuroscience experiments. She joined the lab in 2018 for her doctoral studies, and her current research focuses on the role of GABA synapses at PVN in shaping defensive responses during environmental threats, leveraging computational methods and developing novel analytical tools to understand defensive behaviors from a dynamical systems perspective.
