Professional activities

I’m a science communicator, educator, and neuroscientist.

I have led training, education, and outreach programming at the Allen Institute since 2018. I created our education program and resources (available here), and I develop training programs and materials for professional scientists to learn about the Allen Institute’s open resources and how to use them.

I earned my BA from Pomona College and PhD from the University of Washington, both in neuroscience. I also have a background in theater, particularly performance and stage management, as well as experience in directing.

I’m also a longtime volunteer at Pacific Science Center, where I have presented an annual series of Halloween-themed neuroscience talks.
