I joined ALBA because :
I strongly believe in the importance of inclusivity and of giving equal chanches to humans in all their diversities. It is crucial to tackle obstacles that prevent all people to take equal part in neurosciences and to develop their full potential in this field.

Gender: Female
Fields of research :
Behavioral neuroscience
Cognitive neuroscience

Evolutionary and comparative neuroscience
Analysis of behavior and cognition in humans
Data analysis and statistics
Electrophysiology (channels)
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.
