I've spent the past 10 years researching the brain and how people learn and remember. I also spend a lot of time self-reflecting and thinking about life. Outside of work, I like to do yoga in a hot room while waving around weights (it's actually a lot of fun), visit local farmers markets, cook vegetarian food and bake pies, ride my bike, drink hoppy beer, travel, and play board games with my husband.
