I received PhD training in Cristina Alberini's lab at Mount Sinai and NYU and was a postdoctoral fellow in Catherine Dulac's lab at Harvard. I am interested in animal behavior and the biological underpinnings of emotion and subjective experience.

I'm a junior studying Cognitive Science and Psychology at UCSD. I'm generally interested in emotion and memory and understanding their neurological foundation.
I received my BS in Neuroscience from the University of California, Los Angeles where I studied spatial representations in the retrosplenial cortex under Alcino Silva. I then worked with Tiago Gonçalves to uncover how experience impacts hippocampal spatial representations. I am broadly interested in understanding how animals interact with each other. Particularly, I am interested in how differences in age, sex, and environment govern social interactions.
Kateryna (Kate) Rozenberg
I am a 4th year neurobiology major and psychology minor undergraduate international student at UCSD!
Before Bambah-Mukku Lab, I worked at the Etkin Lab at Stanford. I have been interested in non-verbal communications of animals ever since high school and am interested in understanding the biological basis for species' social behaviors.
My hobbies include snowboarding (since I was 11), road biking, surfing, rock climbing, autosport, photography, pottery, traveling, and I'm trying to get into yoga :)
I'm a second year studying Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience. I am generally interested in how specific populations of neurons affect human and animal behavior. In my free time I love going to the beach, hiking, and hanging out with friends!
I am currently a senior studying Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience at UC San Diego. I have worked on developmental projects regarding the theory of mind and how children understand social behaviors at the Mind and Development Lab at UCSD and as a summer intern at the Moral Psychology Lab at Harvard. I have also worked on projects regarding visual search and attention at the Serences Lab at UCSD. My research interests are understanding how social behavior and cognitive processes arise.
