Dr. O’Neill is a postdoctoral fellow, jointly at the University of Maryland College Park and the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke at the National Institutes of Health. An engineer by training, Dr. O’Neill has sought to solve problems in cellular and systems biology from a quantitative perspective. She received a BSE in Chemical & Biological Engineering in 2011 from Princeton University and a PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Rutgers University in 2017. For her doctoral work, Dr. O’Neill studied how brain-derived neurotrophic factor affects the morphology of single cells and the activity of neuronal networks. Her postdoctoral research now focuses on the role of actin dynamics in neuronal development and signaling, at both the single cell and network levels. In addition to research, she is also passionate about STEM outreach and science communication and is always seeking ways to broaden the impact of her research.
