What does science mean to you? Which fields are you particularly interested in? Do you have expertise in any field?

Science has always appealed to me as a beautiful way to make sense of the world's messy complexity. Every facet of our experience on this earth owes its existence to some magical law of nature, and increasingly we have the tools to understand those laws. We think we know, we learn, and then we know for certain. My background is in neuroscience and genetics, and I currently work with pharmaceutical and healthcare organization. I am particularly interested in biotechnology, drug discovery, scientific education, quantum physics, and environmental issues.

Do you have any connections to regional scientific institutions or organizations? (Not a requirement for membership)

I have some friends at the University of Pennsylvania, but I would like to reach out to other universities, the city's wonderful museums, and other groups to find events and guest speakers.


I'm a former lab rat, now consultant with a degree in neuroscience from Brown University. I'd like to create a group for folks like me, who want the opportunity to attend talks, have discussions, attend exhibits, and continue our scientific education
