Julie Semmelhack received her PhD in 2009, working on the Drosophila olfactory system in Jing Wang's lab at UCSD. She began working on the zebrafish visual system as a postdoc with Herwig Baier, first at UCSF and then then Max Planck Institute for Neurobiology in Martinsried, Germany. Julie started her lab at HKUST in early 2017, and is using functional imaging and quantitative analysis of behavior to understand the neural circuits involved underlying innate visual behaviors.
