Danny Schnitzler, MSci (Hons)
Danny Schnitzler is working as a research assistant at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland on the role of oxytocin in feeding behaviour, while applying for PhD funding. She completed her degree at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland with a First Class MSci and a prize for her thesis, in June 2016.
Her scientific passion is neuroendocrinology, which looks at the role of hormones in the brain. In particular, she has an interest in how sex hormones act on neurophysiolgy.
Outside of the lab, Danny is involved in addressing the gender imbalance in many aspects of STEM, public engagement and science communication. She also does “normal” fun things like going for runs, reading books and petting dogs.
