Becoming The Sociable Scientist has been a lifelong dream. My name is Alyssa Siefert, and I spent a decade as a scientist at Yale before transitioning to healthcare investments (though I occasionally moonlight at various lab benches). My passion is connecting people and ideas. I use this site to share personal stories and the latest and greatest scientific discoveries for non-scientists!
In addition to my lab research, I am constantly self-experimenting in a quest to maximize my health, productivity, athleticism, creativity, relationships, happiness, and impact. I am a voracious consumer of written and auditory information (podcasts are the best!), and I will try any reasonably-safe intervention, track myself meticulously, and happily share my results with you so that you can implement the best strategies and avoid pitfalls.
I look forward to populating this site with scientifically-sound content that will upgrade your life!
