Kathleen received her B.S. with Honors in Neuroscience and a B.A. in History at Brown University. At MIT, she studied learning and memory mechanisms in the visual cortex in Mark Bear's laboratory and earned a Ph.D. in the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences. She joined Vikaas Sohal's laboratory at UCSF as a postdoctoral fellow, to study the mechanisms of functional circuits in the context of mental illness. Currently, she is a principal investigator at the Paris Brain Institute (ICM) by way of Inserm, investigating the role of perisomatic inhibition on prefrontal cortex neurons in gamma oscillations and cognitive flexibility.
