Ann Kennedy, PhD

Assistant Professor at Northwestern University

Location: Chicago, IL United States

Ann Kennedy, PhD, is a theoretical neuroscientist interested in the neural control of complex and naturalistic behavior. Following an undergraduate degree in biomedical engineering from Johns Hopkins University, she pursued her PhD at Columbia University with Dr. Larry Abbott, where she modelled information representation and learning in cerebellum-like structures. She then pursued postdoctoral training with Dr. David Anderson at California Institute of Technology, where she modeled hypothalamic control of social and fear behaviors. She joined the faculty of Northwestern University in 2020, where her research has focused on the use of machine learning methods to characterize the structure of animal behavior and its control by the brain.
