Our lab studies the brain basis of behavior, integrating ecological, evolutionary and neuroscience perspectives in this work . Our primary research is focused on the neurobiological mechanisms supporting "sociality", a.k.a. life in social groups—using diverse species to assess the universality of specific underlying pathways. We also study sex bias in the use of female and male research subjects, and several other topics.

Dr. Beery did her undergraduate work at Caltech/Williams College, completed graduate work at UC Berkeley, and was a Robert Wood Johnson Health and Society Scholar (postdoctoral fellow) at UCSF and UC Berkeley. In 2010 she began a faculty position at Smith College and in 2021 returned to UC Berkeley. Before graduate school she taught high school Biology, Chemistry, and Environmental Science, and worked as a software engineer. She still likes to wear hats from different disciplines. Outside of the lab, Dr. Beery takes care of two humans, 8 chickens, and one cat, and occasionally throws pots.
