Anamika Agrawal, Ph.D.

Shanahan Foundation Fellow


Anamika Agrawal joined the Allen Institute and the University of Washington as a Shanahan Foundation Fellow in August 2022. She received her Ph.D. in Physics from UC San Diego, working with Prof. Elena Koslover. During her graduate studies, she became interested in the interplay of intracellular dynamics and neuronal morphology, with her work focusing on mitochondrial organization. Drawing inspiration from her specialization in Quantitative Biology at UCSD, she enjoys working with simple analytical and computational models that still preserve the relevant biological complexity of the involved data. During the fellowship, she is interested in understanding how cell-type-specific neuronal properties, such as morphology and transcriptomics, contribute to neuronal function and dysfunction.
