Scientist, Skype a Scientist (2021-)
     I am one of 5000+ scientists who volunteer to video chat with classrooms and groups around the world to share research and allow students to get to know a real scientist and have their questions answered. You can search for me in this database and I'd be thrilled to come talk to your group of any age about memory, brains, and aging!
