Angie Michaiel

Science Program Fellow

Angie Michaiel, Ph.D., joined The Kavli Foundation in 2021 as a Science Program Fellow. She primarily works to support research in an emerging scientific area, Neurobiology and Changing Ecosystems. This research explores mechanisms underlying adaptive and plastic neural responses to changing environments, including those induced by climate change, pollution, and other human-caused environmental perturbations.

Prior to joining The Kavli Foundation, Angie obtained her Ph.D. in neuroscience from the University of Oregon. Her doctoral work investigated how the visual system dynamically processes information based on an individual’s context, using electrophysiology, in-vivo imaging, and behavioral quantification techniques. During her postdoctoral work at Harvard Medical School, she studied how animals actively sample the external world and how the brain uses multiple streams of sensory information to create coherent experiences of the environment. Angie seeks to use her knowledge of neuroscience to create funding programs that bring basic neuroscience research closer to societal impact.

In her free time, Angie is a mixed media artist and is active in the rescue greyhound community.
