Do you have any areas of special interest in science?

When I was younger, I was quite intrigued by the cross sections of nutritional science and neuroscience, and just the idea that we can influence our mental faculties to some unknown degree by what we consume.... ...I find in some a blind skepticism that is off-putting, but I am also troubled by the fluff people seem taken by these days. I hope this group will help me maintain this balance as I have fun and explore.

Where in the San Francisco Bay Area are you located?

Silicon Valley is where I live...I have spent some time in the East Bay area as well.

Most of us will be attending events and asking questions, but do also happen to be able to present on any scientific topics?

Teaching is a unique marker of represents true mastery of a subject in my opinion and I hope to learn enough to teach people about something...I don't currently see myself doing this, however.

How did you hear about this science cafe group?

This group has come up in suggestions via's front page. and on searches for 'neuroscience.'


Hi everyone, I have a background in molecular and cell biology and neurobiology. Ivy climbs up around my heart while I think of how I can get re-acquainted with this subject. So, here I am. I hope to bring science back with you all :)
