I love science, and I love being able to share my passion with anyone who will listen! In grad school, it’s your job to become an expert on a narrowly focused topic, but I love all kinds of science and enjoy learning about all the cutting-edge developments across different scientific fields! In 2012, I founded the neuroscience education and outreach website Knowing Neurons together with a few of my graduate student colleagues. We created custom-made graphics to make neuroscience accessible to anyone interested in learning about the brain and mind! In 2016, we won the Society for Neuroscience Next Generation Award for our contributions to public communication, outreach, and education about neuroscience. I stepped down from my role as Editor-in-Chief and Webmaster in 2017, but I am still very involved in the #scicomm community!
I have written over 50 posts at Knowing Neurons, which you can explore here.
If you really want to understand my research, my passion for science communication, and my fascination with photography, I recommend listening to some of these podcast interviews:
