Annaliese Beery is a member of the Psychology Department, the Biology Department, and the Neuroscience Program, and she aspires to integrate ecological, evolutionary, and neuroscience perspectives in her work. Her primary research is focused on the neurobiological mechanisms supporting life in social groups—using diverse species to assess the universality of specific underlying pathways. Her lab also investigates how early life experience/exposures alter the development of adult affect and behavior. She is the recipient of grants from the National Institute of Mental Health, the National Science Foundation, and other organizations.   

Professor Beery received a doctorate in neuroscience from the University of California, Berkeley, in 2008 and conducted postdoctoral research as a Robert Wood Johnson Health & Society Scholar at UCSF and UC Berkeley before joining the Smith faculty.  She was an undergraduate at Caltech and Williams College, and spent six years as a software engineer and high school teacher between college and graduate school.
