I joined ALBA because :
Promoting equality and diversity in the brain sciences is an important topic for me. I believe this issue is two-fold: On the one hand, we need more diverse neuroscientists; on the other hand, we need to understand human diversity so that more populations are represented. Throughout my career, I have studied human diversity by comparing people of diverse cultures with and without mental disorders using neuroimaging technique. My reason behind this is to understand underrepresented communities so that we may have a more inclusive model of how the human brain functionally processes information. I am an assistant editor and junior member of the World Association of Cross-Cultural Psychiatry - whose journal actively includes scientists from underrepresented countries. During graduate school, I also founded their Student and Trainee Section.

I joined ALBA because :
As a young scientist I was incredibly naive about the gender gap in science and issues such as unconscious bias. As I got older, however, I increasingly found myself sitting in meetings, one of the few female faculty in the room and I started to ask myself where all the women had gone?
I currently live and work in Denmark: a country that can be proud of the fantastic strides it has made with respect to gender equality in society. I am part of a new organisation working to now ensure that this equality will reach into the science realm where, unfortunately, we still lag behind many countries.
