In a nutshell: I am passionate about making science accessible to the curious everywhere through writing, teaching, outreach, mentorship, and whatever else I get roped into. Here on the internet, I write mostly science-y stuff.
Check out my podcast: NEUROFRIENDS.
Teaching: Currently, I am teaching in the Program in Writing and Rhetoric at Stanford University. Previously, I was a Thinking Matters Fellow there.
Research: I completed my PhD in Neuroscience at UC-Berkeley in August 2015. I was a student in the Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute, and for my doctoral research, I worked with Rich Ivry in the Cognition and Action Lab (CognAc). I used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to investigate how errors and rewards shape learning in the brain.
