Becoming The Sociable Scientist has been a lifelong dream. My name is Aly Siefert, PhD, and my day job is Engineering Director and Instructor at Yale University’s Center for Biomedical and Interventional Technology (CBIT), and 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, and happiness. 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!
