Emma
Laurent

Research/Staff scientist at NYU
United States Website
Gender: Female
Fields of research : Behavioral neuroscience Cognitive neuroscience Computational neuroscience and modeling Disorders of the nervous system 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)
Reason of joining Alba Network :
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.
