I am gay and I am a scientist and science advocate.//
I’m a scientist with a PhD in neuroscience. During graduate school, I decided to become a science advocate full time. The need for effective science advocates to develop effective science policies is more important than ever. We have many challenges that remain, but no shortage of talent, knowledge, and passion to face them head on. I am the public affairs manager at the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.
