I am not just a scientist. I also play the flute with the amazing alternative rock band Marlowe Grey.
I also play and sing with the roving band of neuroscientists-turned-rockstars known as Pavlov’s Dogz.
I am also an open water swimmer. I have swum from Brooklyn to Manhattan, from Alcatraz to San Francisco, and many other swims besides. My favourite last year was from the Verrazano Bridge to Sandy Hook, organised by the Coney Island and Brighton Beach Open Water Swimmers (CIBBOWS).
