Tessa Montague, Ph.D.

Tessa received a B.A. and M.Phil. in Genetics from the University of Cambridge, where she worked in the lab of Daniel St Johnston. As a Ph.D. student at Harvard University, Tessa dissected molecular pathways underlying zebrafish embryogenesis in Alex Schier’s lab and co-created the CRISPR/Cas9 web tool, CHOPCHOP. As a postdoc in the Axel lab, Tessa is now trying to uncover the neural basis of cuttlefish camouflage behavior to understand how visual information is internally represented in the brain.
