Kevin Munoz

Research Technician

Kevin earned his Bachelor of Science in Behavioral Neuroscience from Rider University in 2017 and is currently working on his Master’s degree at the University of Pennsylvania.  As an undergraduate, his research focused on circadian rhythms, mainly studying the underlying effects of photoperiod manipulation of the day/night cycles to determine a potential link to diet and metabolism disruption of circadian processes. Kevin also developed a study to examine a back and forth shiftwork model in mice to study the adverse health effects of jet-lagged mice due to circadian rhythm imbalance and conjunction to metabolism, obesity, and diabetes. In our laboroatory, Kevin was involved with iron metabolism related projects.
