Angie Michaiel joined The Kavli Foundation in 2021 as a Science Program Fellow. She primarily works to support the International Brain Initiative (IBI), a program that convenes large-scale nationally sponsored neuroscience programs across the world.
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. Angie conducted postdoctoral work at Harvard Medical School where she studied how animals actively sample the external world and how the brain uses multiple sensory modalities to create coherent experiences of the world.
In her free time, Angie is a mixed media painter and likes to spend time exploring with her dog, Pluto.
