Neuroscience Theater

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

Neuroscience Theater is a science communication project making science about the brain entertaining and approachable to a broad social media 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 academic events, seminars, conferences, and speak on podcasts.

Simply Neurocon 2022 conference

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 pop culture. I highlighted specific movies and TV shows that feature neuroscience themes, connecting them to real-life, cutting-edge neuroscience research not only to educate the audience but hopefully inspire them as well.

Uneasy Lies the Crown podcast

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".
