Stephanie Zhu
Research Technologist

My name is Stephanie (she/her). I’m a research technician in the lab. I grew up in Suzhou, China, and I moved to Seattle for college. I graduated from the UW in 2021 with Psychology and Neuroscience majors and a Marine Biology minor. Before this lab, I mostly studied memory and decision-making, where I ran rats on plus-mazes and gave monkeys touchscreens to play memory games. I’m interested in learning more about invertebrate nervous systems and behaviors. Outside of the lab, I love arts and crafts, baking, hiking, and spending time with my cats Pumpkin and Juniper.
