Research Interests

The Clowney lab studies how animals perceive the (absolutely vast!) world. We think about this question from the point of view of neural circuits, brain development, differentiation of the brain between males and females, and the evolution of large gene families whose protein products contact environment-derived molecules.

DEI Statement

I try to foster a culture of abundance in the lab and create an environment in which trainees are able to be their "whole selves." I am also working to increase equity in how undergraduates obtain research experience.
