Ruma Chatterji is a doctoral candidate in the Layne Lab-Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Cincinnati. Upon graduating with her master’s in biology from Texas A&M University- Corpus Christi, where she investigated memory mechanisms in Aplysia, her fascination with examining the role of memory in animal behavior propelled her to pursuing related research for her PhD. She is currently studying navigation mechanisms in fiddler crabs (Uca pugilator) and is investigating aspects of home vector memory subserving path integration, such as how the memory is stored and its duration.
