This week we learn about getting out the vote, ADHD, and self-compassion.
Andrew holds a B.A. in English and Cognitive Science from the University of Georgia. He lives in Brooklyn, where he writes stories and essays and works at a legal publishing agency. He's been summarizing scientific studies for friends and loved ones for years (whether they wanted him to or not), so it's nice to be putting this skill to use. Other interests include philosophy, comedy, busking, and running.
Tom is a PhD student in the Cognitive Science department of UCSD, where he uses computational methods and neural recordings to investigate how the brain communicates with itself. He did a Cognitive Science Bachelor's degree at McGill University and has research experience in neuroimaging and language studies. Outside of being a science nerd, he enjoys travel and music.
Julia is a New Zealander completing a PhD at the Australian National University. Her work bridges economics, ecology, and natural resource management. She really likes grass, trees, snow, and mountains.
