Neuroscience Theater

Branding, Content Strategy, Copywriting, Design, Research, Social Media

Neuroscience Theater is a science communication series making learning about the brain entertaining and approachable to a broad audience by examining the neuroscience depicted in movies and pop culture. I create and manage everything from branding, such as creating the custom logo and graphics, to researching and developing strategy and content, scriptwriting, and video editing for content on TikTok, Instagram, YouTube, as well as copywriting for Twitter. I also present at educational events such as seminars and conferences, and speak on podcasts.

Speaking Engagements

At Simply Neurocon 2022, an annual interdisciplinary neuroscience conference, I presented on humanity's fascination with the mind throughout history to modern day. I discussed how our pursuit of understanding and knowledge about the brain transcends the domains of neuroscience, permeating the realms of art, movies, and mass media. I highlighted specific movies and TV shows that feature neuroscience themes, connecting them to real-life, innovative research.

The University College London (UCL) Neuroscience Society also invited me to speak at their seminar series, where I had the opportunity to share the latest developments in brain research with a diverse audience of students and members of the general public. In addition to presenting cutting-edge findings, I also explored the philosophical implications of neuroscience through the lens of films and pop culture, with the goal of stimulating curiosity and engagement within the field of neuroscience.

Podcast Appearances

Uneasy Lies the Crown is a podcast that examines famous royals from historical and biological perspectives, shedding light on how mental and neurological illness shaped some of the world’s most important leaders, and in turn, the course of history. Hosted by a duo of history and neuroscience experts, I was invited onto the podcast for a special episode discussing the neuroscience behind King George VI's stutter as depicted in the Oscar-winning film "The King's Speech".
