Kate Allen Is doing neuroscience
In the news
Hello, world! I am a current postdoctoral fellow in the Johns Hopkins BatLab where I study representation and interpretation of complex acoustic scenes by bats. I did my graduate research in the lab of Dr Gary Marsat at West Virginia University, studying communication in weakly electric fish.
I specialize in sensory processing, active sensory systems, and animal communication. I am interested in big questions about how the central nervous system specializes for the detection and discrimination of signals, especially in noisy environments.
Key interests: neuroethology, active sensory systems, communication, information theory, perception, systems neuroscience
Key skills: electrophysiology, behavior, signal processing, histology
