Thanks for visiting my website. I’m a brain biologist and research fellow currently undertaking research in Wollongong, Australia. My research group studies how stress contributes to the develpment of mental illness. You can read more about the Matosin Lab here:

As the public fund me, I aim to give back by being transparent about who I am and what I do. This blog contains my thoughts, information about my career and research, and sometimes ideas which I am wrapping my head around.

I love to mentor and pay it forward, and have a bunch of articles on career development throughout my blog for early career scientists.

You can find out more about me in the profiles below.
