Leveraging my skills in neuroscience research and brain data analysis, my strengths and diverse expertise make me an effective translator between data analysts and creative teams in building impactful strategies. I want to help organizations tell stories and reach their audiences through effective and engaging planning. I have a master's degree in Neuroscience from UC San Francisco, where I conducted cutting-edge research on hormonal regulation of a neuronal network for metabolism and sensory cognition in females. This project was awarded funding from the National Science Foundation and Impetus Longevity Grant. As an account coordinator at Stellate Communications, I supported multiple accounts in the biotech and healthcare sector and contributed to the planning, executing, and evaluating PR and marketing campaigns. My career path includes other roles as a journalist and an art curator, as well as educator and presenter. I started covering developments in arts and technology ten years ago, a beat that includes investigations of AR filters, GIF art, BioArt, projection mapping, and more. I am passionate about new technologies and scientific discoveries—their ability to modulate how humans creatively express their emotions. I am a painter exploring sensory perception, emotions, and memories and advocate for mental health awareness. In the past, I successfully developed educational outreach events for young people using art to explain scientific concepts underlying psychiatric pathologies.
