Paula Rodriguez Villamayor

I received my PhD in Neuroscience from the University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain). I joined Columbia University as a Fulbright Postdoctoral Researcher in January 2023. I am based at the Zuckerman Institute, where I study the neural and genetic mechanisms underlying socio-sexual behaviour in Betta fish.

I am passionate about research outreach and social communication, that is why I joined CUPS very soon after I arrived in the big apple! And to have a good start, I became the new Secretary of CUPS – exciting!
Apart from my research goals, I hope I will be able to run the (half) marathon after some time in the city.
