I love telling stories about science, particularly ones that shine light on the process and people behind it.


I recently wrote a book, titled So You Want to Be a Neuroscientist? (Columbia University Press, December 2020). The goal is to give aspiring neuroscientists honest, informative insight about our field, as well as education and careers through it.

You can get a glimpse of what the book will be like in some of my articles for The Spike: including, “Why you should (or shouldn’t) get a PhD in neuroscience,” “There’s no such thing as a computational person“,and “Preparing for a neuroscience PhD.”


I’ve also written for a few other outlets:

Simons Foundation
