Sinzi Pop


Sinzi studied Biochemistry for her undergrad at the Babeș-Bolyai University in Romania and went on to study Molecular Neuroscience for her MSc at the Graduate Training Center of Neuroscience at Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen in Germany. Inspired by her lab rotation with Andrea Wizenmann and her Master thesis with Thomas Euler and Timm Schubert, Sinzi pursued a PhD in Developmental Neurobiology with Darren Williams at King’s College London. For her postdoc, Sinzi will use two-photon volumetric calcium imaging to disentangle olfactory networks in D.melanogaster and compare them to other drosophilids. Combining her work with that of the other members of our team, she aspires to understand how structural and functional networks evolve.
