I feel most alive when I am teaching from the stage and personally connecting to people who have been positively impacted by my work.

As a California State University biology lecturer, my goal is to make science accessible and applicable for all. As an author and a speaker, I help people create better lives through science and only present on topics that I have personally struggled with. 

Through sharing my research on fear, I hope to give science a soul and biology some much needed bravado. 

I hold two Masters degrees in Biology and Science Communication from Imperial College London, in which I graduated with honors.
