I am passionate about science outreach and communication. Here’s a list of some of the things I do. And check out the News page to see what’s coming up!
You can find my blog at Psychology Today where I write about memory, cognition and the higher functions of the brain, and talk about new research in those areas.
I am a member of NeuWrite, a collaborative working group for scientists and writers working together to communicate science to the public.
I am also a committee member for the New York-wide Brain Awareness Week activities (BraiNY).
