Becoming The Sociable Scientist has been a lifelong dream. My name is Alyssa Siefert, PhD, and my day job is Engineering Director and Instructor at Yale University’s Center for Biomedical Innovation & 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!
