Anthony Krafnick, Ph.D.

B.S. -- Saint Josephs's University, 2008, Biology
Ph.D. -- Georgetown University, 2013, Interdisciplinary Program in Neuroscience

Anthony graduated from Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia in 2008 with a B.S. in Biology and a minor in Psychology. His undergraduate research consisted of examining the effects of elevated CO2 on a native North Carolina Redbud population and predatory behavior of Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus on E. coli. He conducted is Ph.D. in the Interdisciplinary Program in Neuroscience under the mentorship of Dr. Guinevere Eden working on the anatomical and neural correlates following reading intervention in dyslexic children. He received his Ph.D. in May 2013 and is currently conducting postdoctoral work with Dr. Eden on the development of ventral visual representation of reading in typical children.
