Annegret Falkner is an assistant professor at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute (PNI). Her lab’s work focuses on understanding the neural basis of social behavior, social affective states, and hormone-dependent neuroplasticity in adulthood. An Ohio native, she graduated from Oberlin College with a BA in biology and biochemistry (‘02), then completed her PhD in Neuroscience at Columbia University (‘12), followed by a postdoctoral fellowship at NYU. Outside the lab, Annegret loves to bike, hike, backpack, and travel by train, things she can’t wait to share with her two young daughters, Luka and Roxana.
