Zainab is a 4th year Microbiology student at UCSB. She is interested in computational biology and loves the problem solving aspect of coding. This, as well as being intrigued by the optogenetic control of larval chemotaxis, led Zainab to join the Louis Lab in the summer of 2020. She hopes to gain a better understanding of behavioral data analysis and neural computation. She will soon begin analyzing data on learning behavior in Drosophila larva.
