I am Associate Director of Public Programs at Columbia University’s Zuckerman Institute where we produce public programs about science. I am a science communicator who is passionate about sharing science with as many people as possible. I am a Senior Producer for The Story Collider, and I also blog for Psychology Today.
I am also a neuroscientist, and am an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Neuroscience at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. I started my laboratory in July 2013. My undergraduate research was at the University of Cambridge, and my Ph.D. was at the University of Oxford where I worked with Matthew Rushworth and David Bannerman. During my postdoctoral work I was a Charles H. Revson Senior Fellow in the Life Sciences (Postdoctoral Fellow) in the laboratory of Mark Baxter, first at the University of Oxford and late at Mount Sinai.
