Juhee Haam, Ph.D.
Department of Biological Sciences
Louisiana State University
Juhee joined the faculty at LSU in January 2021 to lead a research group in the Department of Biological Sciences. Her laboratory aims to understand neural circuit basis of the multi-stage memory formation processes. She is enthusiastic about using a combined approach of experimental and computational neuroscience to fully understand the distinct memory formation processes in the brain.
Jessica Dugas, B.S.
Jessica received her bachelor's degree in Biology and a minor in Forensics from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. She is pursuing her master's degree in Biology at Indiana State University. Outside of the lab Jessica likes painting, reading, and spending time with friends.
Atharva Dingankar, M.S.
Atharva completed his BS-MS from Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Pune in India. Atharva’s master’s thesis aimed at investigating the ability of mice to discriminate between same odors presented at different timings. Athrava’s research interests lie in integrating molecular, behavioral and computational approaches to investigate the circuits and coding mechanisms underlying learning and memory. In Haam Lab, Atharva will focus on memory formation at a deeper level in the brain. Outside academics, Atharva likes to spend time reading literature and philosophy, playing badminton and chess. Atharva is also interested in communicating science to masses outside academic environment.
Suman Gunin, M.S.
Suman received his master’s degree in Neuroscience from University of Calcutta and did predoctoral research at IIT, KGP, where he worked on understanding the relationship between deviant-detection in the orbitofrontal cortex and the prominence of subplate neurons. In Haam Lab, Suman is interested in understanding the neurobiological circuitry that influences memory consolidation as well as recollection. Outside the lab, Suman enjoys science outreach, cooking, swimming, and painting.
Hayden is a senior biochemistry major at LSU. He has a great interest in neuroscience and would like to attend graduate school to learn more about the subject. In his free time, Hayden likes to read books, cook, and spend time with his friends and family.
