I’ll be at the comedy edition of Ravenna Third Place Book’s Science on Tap next Monday, February 24! The theme is “the humorous side of research” – you might be able to guess what my take on that will entail. Doors open at 5:30 and seats are expected to fill. No advance ticket sales orContinue reading “Science on Tap: February 24”
Thanks for featuring me, everyone! This article (in which I am quoted) describes a project I worked on as a graduate student. I was featured in Pomona College’s Alumni Career Stories talking about my life after college. To promote my Halloween science talk, I was on Pacific Science Center’s podcast. Amazingly, they already had thatContinue reading “Featured around the internet, fall 2019”

Come see me on October 30 at 7pm for an orientation session for new werewolves. Those bitten on the October 23 full moon, their friends and family, and all others are welcome! Appropriate for all ages,Continue reading “Science Halloween #3: Bad Moon Rising”
I defended! I still can’t believe the big day has come and gone.
Through my involvement with the CSNE at UW, I was able to teach a six-week course on neural engineering for high school students in summer 2016 and again in 2017. I’ve now turned that live course into an online version, which includes six hours of video lectures, instructions for three hands-on demos, homework assignments, andContinue reading “Introduction to Neural Engineering”
In summary: I’m so glad I took a chance on this project, it was a hell of a learning curve but I got through it, and I can’t wait to do it again.
I was lucky enough last year to talk about the neuroscience of zombies at Pacific Science Center. And this year I had the delight that they let me come back to talk about the science of Frankenstein! I discussed the neuroscience of Frankenstein’s creature, some of the scientific advancements he would have had to makeContinue reading “Science of Frankenstein – Halloween at Pacific Science Center 2017”
Last week my lab mate James and I gave a talk at the Pacific Science Center on the present and future of brain-computer interfaces. It was pretty rad. I’m sorry we missed you there (unless you came, in which case thanks for finding my website!) but you can still check out the video here: and youContinue reading “It’s 2017, where’s my cyborg?”
