Working towards a more equitable academic environment to nurture diversity, and to promote creativity has become an important personal goal as an active professional member within our scientific community. This goal requires actions at many different levels, from the lab to scientific organizations to entities developing policies. Thus, it is important to connect with colleagues who are working towards similar goals to assist and contribute to an important transformation that must take place to make science and scientific careers possible regardless of gender identity, race, ethnicity, disability, culture or socioeconomic status.

Imaging (PET, fMRI, etc)
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.
