Juliana Chase

Graduate Fellow
Department of Psychology
Juliana Chase is currently a 5th year PhD student in Behavioral & Systems Neuroscience at UC Berkeley. Juliana’s dissertation work employs experimental and computational techniques to better understand neural circuit differences in mouse models of autism. Throughout her PhD, Juliana has been interested in what happens when science leaves the lab and has been engaged with science policy and outreach organizations on campus. As a fellow, Juliana hopes to build on her experience as an organizer and science communicator to explore how scientists can partner with affected communities throughout the research process to create stronger and more effective science. She is excited to use the Kavli Center Graduate Fellowship to develop educational and interdisciplinary resources for early-career scientists to become more engaged in the ethical implications of their work.
