Lili Karashchuk, Ph.D.

Scientist I


Lili is a scientist focused in studying on how animals move at a granular level. She is especially interested in how animals organize their movements in natural settings, especially for walking and grooming. Lili received her PhD in Neuroscience from University of Washington, working with John Tuthill and Bing Brunton, where she developed a toolkit for 3D pose estimation (Anipose) and built models of walking in fruit flies. In a past life, she also co-founded a medical device startup, Evolution Devices, to help people with foot drop walk through timed electrical muscle stimulation. At the Allen Institute, Lili is extending her past work to capture and model the 3D kinematics of freely moving mice.
