Natalie M. Zahr
Assistant Professor (Research) of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences (Major Laboratories)
BioNatalie M. Zahr, Ph.D. is a research scientist at Stanford University and SRI International. Her graduate education in the basic sciences included the study of neuro- pharmacology, physiology, and anatomy. After she completed graduate training as an electrophysiologist, she began postdoctoral training as a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scientist. Her work focuses on translational approaches using in vivo MR imaging and spectroscopy in studies of human alcoholics and rodent models of alcoholism with the goal of identifying fundamental mechanisms of alcohol effects on the brain. Her position allows her to explore emerging MR technologies and apply them to test relevant hypotheses. She teaches Human Anatomy and Neuroscience courses at UC Berkeley Extension and enjoys sharing her knowledge and enthusiasm for learning with her students. Her interests include hosting parties (i.e., cooking enough to feed a small army), dancing, traveling, skiing, scuba diving, hiking, yoga, and acquiring new hobbies (e.g., snow kiting and rock climbing) whenever possible.
Research Scientist, Psych/Major Laboratories and Clinical & Translational Neurosciences Incubator
BioI am generally interested in using image analysis techniques to improve detection, diagnosis and treatment of diseases. My research interests particularly lie in the areas of non-linear statistics and machine learning applied to translational neuroscience.
