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? The goal is to give aspiring neuroscientists honest, informative insight about our field, as well as education and careers through it. You can find it on Amazon (Amazon Affiliates Link, #ad) or on the Columbia University Press Store!

You can get a glimpse of what the book contains by watching my book talk for Harvard Brain Initiative or reading 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.”

There is also a review of my book in the Journal of Undergraduate Neuroscience Education.

If you’re curious about the process of writing a book, or thinking of pitching your own, check out this interview I did with the Signals blog.

I’ve also written for a few other outlets:
