I joined ALBA because :
because a diversity and equal opportunity increase creativity and productivity of organization. They are also ethically justified and promote well-being. I would like to learn of challenges and offer information and experience from the University of California system and my personal experience. Together we blossom.

Gender: Female
Fields of research :
Other
Epidemiology; Genetics; Epigenetics
Analysis of behavior and cognition in humans
Computation, modeling, and simulation
Data analysis and statistics
Genetic models and techniques
I joined ALBA because :
I learned about this through ECNP 2019 and think its mission is terrific and I would love to be involved and help in any way that I can. It also looks that there is an underrepresentation of people from the United States, hence I hope to also contribute to this becoming a global network.

I joined ALBA because :
I am joing Alba because:
1)I want to grow in research by performing cross-disciplinary science.
2)I would love to mentor and help someone who is in need of any help.
3)I would be happy to find a mentor beyond my research questions, mostly for professional motivation and intellectual growth.
4) I want to promote and benefit from diversity across continents in science.

Gender: Female
Fields of research :
Behavioral neuroscience

History, teaching, public awareness, and societal
Analysis of behavior and cognition in humans
Analysis of behavior and cognition in non-human animal
Computation, modeling, and simulation
Data analysis and statistics
Imaging (PET, fMRI, etc)
I joined ALBA because :
After developing and working with BrainWaves (link attached), a program aimed at bringing hands on EEG research into the classroom, my passion for STEM outreach and equal opportunity in the foundational years in high school regardless of economic background has grown immensely. If we can cultivate interests in neuroscience at a young age, we may then finally be able to see a demographic change reflected in the professional world of research.
