Kayla Lim is currently pursuing a PhD in Physiology at UCLA, where her research is focused on investigating the neural circuits underlying affiliative social behaviors. Before discovering her interest in neuroscience, Kayla went to a specialized arts high school training to be a professional dancer. In a turn of events, she went on to receive Bachelors degrees in Neuroscience and Psychology. She believes that art and science are a lot more similar than others let on, and continues to find creativity in both. Outside the lab, Kayla enjoys getting others excited about science and occasionally spends too much time testing out new recipes.
