John Tuthill hails from the perilous boreal forest of central Maine. He graduated from Swarthmore College in 2006, then spent time working in labs in Montana and Buenos Aires, Argentina. John studied the neural undercarriage of the fruit fly visual system. He is interested not only in how brains are put together, but also how they are taken apart, and the implications of both for society. Outside the lab, John’s hobbies include the asphalt arts (road construction) and fundraising for local politicians.
Currently a post-doc in Rachael Wilson's lab at Harvard: http://wilson.med.harvard.edu/WilsonLabPeople.htm
