Rayna Harris

Scientist, Educator, Community Builder

I am currently a post-doctoral researcher in Titus Brown's lab at The University of California, Davis. I have a PhD in Cell and Molecular Biology from The University of Texas at Austin. As part of my research endeavours, I've studied the biochemistry of tropical microbes in Costa Rica, the neural basis of social behavior in cichlid fish from South Africa, and the neuromolecular substrates of avoidance learning in the rodent hippocampus. I'm also a member of The Carpentries, which is a non-profit community-driven organization focused on teaching coding and data science skills.
