Annabelle Singer, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor
Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering
Georgia Tech and Emory University


Annabelle Singer is a neuroscientist with extensive experience in the biology of learning and memory from health to disease, from animal models to humans, and from computations within neurons to across populations of cells. She is currently an Assistant Professor in George Tech’s Department of Biomedical Engineering. She completed a post-doctoral fellowship in Ed Boyden’s Synthetic Neurobiology Group at MIT and she received her Ph.D. in Neuroscience from UCSF, performing research in the laboratory of Loren Frank. Singer’s long-term goal is to understand how neural activity produces memories and protects brain health. Using this knowledge, she is engineering neural activity to treat brain diseases. To achieve these aims, Singer integrates innovative engineering, biology, and computational approaches toexamine how coordinated electrical activity across many neurons represents memories of experiences and how this activity fails in  disease.  Singer’s discoveries have resulted in a series of first author peer-reviewed papers, dozens of talks and presentations, and both popular science articles and academic commentary. In the course of her research Singer has developed new methods to simultaneously record neural inputs and outputs during behavior in awake behaving animals, new approaches to analyze complex neural data, and new therapeutic approaches to treat cognitive disease.
