I am finishing up my PhD in Neurosciences at the University of California San Diego, studying the biology of psychiatric illnesses.  When I'm not writing about science and playing with mice in the lab, I am probably writing about science and playing with mice at home.  I am the director of NeuWrite San Diego, a group of young scientists learning to better communicate science with our community through our blog and various outreach activities and workshops.  I am looking forward to spending summer 2017 as a AAAS Mass Media Fellow at NPR!
