Neda earned her doctorate in electrical engineering from the University of California Santa Barbara. Her major in control theory reinforced a deep interest in biology and set the course for her research trajectory. After completing a postdoctorate in biological engineering at MIT, she joined the chemical & biological engineering faculty at Northwestern University and launched the Modeling Dynamic Life Systems (MoDyLS) Laboratory. Neda's lab develops computational models to help explain experimental observations and elucidate fundamental properties governing cellular dynamics, regulation, and function.
In 2019, she joined the Allen Institute for Cell Science in an advisory role and moved her lab to the University of Washington where she holds a joint position in biology and chemical engineering.
