I love telling stories about science, particularly ones that shine light on the process and people behind it.
I’m currently working on a book, tentatively titled So you want to be a neuroscientist?(Columbia University Press, estimated late 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:
- Why you should (or shouldn’t) get a PhD in neuroscience
- There’s no such thing as a computational person
- Preparing for a neuroscience PhD
I’ve also written for a few other outlets:
- People ask about my experiments on mice. The answers are… complicated.
- Want to learn how brains go awry? First, we must learn how they work
- Five facts about Mary Putnam Jacobi, medical pioneer and suffragette
- Why designer drugs continue to be elusive
