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.

I joined ALBA because :
I am passionate about working toward improving representation of women and underrepresented groups in science. I have been involved in addressing this at the undergrad, grad, postdoc and faculty levels. I am very keen to expand my involvement globally and working with ALBA will bring exciting opportunities. Also I should mention that I have dual citizenship UK and USA, and have many connections in europe. I am the past president of SfN and so am also keen to foster a closer collaboration between SfN and ALBA.
