Gender: Female
Fields of research :
Behavioral neuroscience
Cognitive neuroscience
Sensory systems neuroscience
Analysis of behavior and cognition in humans
Imaging (PET, fMRI, etc)
Therapeutic techniques
I joined ALBA because :
Your reply to the paper by Alshebi et al. made me aware of your network.
I beneffited greatly from metnorship, and find it wonderful there is a community within neurosciences to support this.

Pharmacology
I joined ALBA because :
Unfortunately -subtle- sexism, racism, classim, homophobia, transphobia, handiphobia etc. are present in academia. I try to be an inter-sectional feminist and I would like to fight for a better inclusion of people from under represented groups in academia.

Johannes
Bohacek

Species : vertebrate
I joined ALBA because :
Fixing the leaky pipeline in STEM will be one of the main challenges of my generation of researchers. To contribute to this effort, I'm trying to make a difference in my own lab, and also as a member of the gender equality committee of the Zurich Neuroscience Center. I hope that joining Alba will help to flag and counteract bias in all its forms in the wider neuroscience community.

Switzerland Website
Gender: Female
Fields of research :
Behavioral neuroscience
Cognitive neuroscience
Developmental neuroscience
Analysis of behavior and cognition in humans
Data analysis and statistics
Imaging (PET, fMRI, etc)
I joined ALBA because :
It is crucial to improve the visibility and inclusion of female scientists in brain imaging (and STEM, in general). No change will happen unless we all contribute to achieve this goal.

Gender: Female
Fields of research :
Behavioral neuroscience
Cognitive neuroscience
Analysis of behavior and cognition in humans
Data analysis and statistics
Imaging (PET, fMRI, etc)
I joined ALBA because :
It is very important for Research to become inclusive and to promote diversity. I would like to engage in that direction, and the Alba network seems perfect to do so.

I joined ALBA because :
Because the higher I go in my career, the more troubles I face to get funding and opportunities for being a single woman in their 30s (They may think that I will have "other" priorities that come with age, which doesn't happen when you are a man).
