Stephanie Koebele, PhD

Postdoctoral Fellow

Arizona State University

Stephanie earned her Ph.D. in Behavioral Neuroscience in Psychology. Her research interests include the cognitive and neurobiological effects of reproductive hormones in the context of menopause, memory, and aging in females. This includes the natural fluctuations in reproductive hormones across the lifespan as well as exogenous exposures to hormones, such as via hormone-containing contraceptives and hormone therapies. Her doctoral research focused on the brain and behavioral impacts of variations in surgical menopause, including hysterectomy, on spatial learning and memory in a preclinical rat model. She is currently expanding my research area to include human data sets, questions about Alzheimer's disease and related dementias, and environmental-immune-endocrine interactions.
