Margot Wohl hails from Bel Air, Maryland which is not the Bel Air to which the Fresh Prince is heir.

In addition to producing audio stories, she is pursuing a PhD in neuroscience at UC San Diego in a Salk Institute laboratory. Her research centers on how brain cells and the molecules they exchange give rise to aggressive behaviors in fruit flies.

You can sometimes find her late at night in the laboratory inspecting and photographing insects she finds (#insectagram).

Margot wants to make sure everyone can feel as amazed by science as she is — which is why she started producing audio stories for the Salk Institute, and now for KPBS.
