I joined ALBA because :
As a neuroscientist and clinical psychologist, I now work to promote well-being in academia. I work one-on-one with post-grads, postdocs, early career researchers and faculty to help reduce burnout, overwhelm, anxiety and fear. My goal is to foster a dialogue regarding the well-being and performance of our academic community (I have a particular fond spot for neuroscientists) and I hope to widen the scope of that discussion with ALBA.

I joined ALBA because :
Science will only grow if we do it altogether. More people, more views, more ideas: diversity is a key component to achieve this. Unfortunately, the world of today is still unfair with minority groups and neuroscience does not escape from this reality. Promoting diversity requires direct actions and engagement, and that is why I would like to join this ambitious and necessary initiative.
