Steven Zwick

Steven received his B.S in Physics from Yale University. After a rotation in a nuclear physics lab as an undergraduate, Steven became interested in the question of how decisions and fate choices are made in biological systems. He worked with Thierry Emonet to investigate how the Drosophila olfactory system processes information about different odors through neural coding, using computational modeling in accordance with neurophysiological measurements from olfactory receptor neurons. In particular, Steven was interested in the question of how an olfactory system can extract information about the identity of an odor independent of its concentration or when it is mixed with competing odors.
