Dr. Orli Snir is a postdoctoral fellow in social evolution and behavior, working with Prof. Daniel Kronauer at The Rockefeller University. Her work explores the question of how, during evolutionary transitions, initially independent units become integrated and mutually dependent to form an organized society. To address this question, she investigates mechanisms of social interactions in ant colonies and their underlying physiological and neural determinants. Dr. Snir obtained her B.Sc and M.Sc in life science from Tel-Aviv University. Her M.Sc work—conducted with the late Prof. Hillel Fromm—focused on developmental plasticity in response to environmental stress. Dr. Snir received her Ph.D. in biology from The Weizmann Institute of Science. Working with Prof. Yoav Soen, she studied epigenome-environment interactions that mediate lifelong and transgenerational responses.
