I'm working in neuroendocrinology at CUMC. During the day, I study eating disorders in mice. Being a postdoc often feels lonely, so after some time just talking to my mice, I decided to be part of some more human community and joined CUPS. I got to meet great people with fascinating life experience and supportive advice. I am pleased to take the lead of our society for the next year, and cannot wait to welcome all your eccentric and brilliant ideas to build a friendly and rich environment in Columbia. Looking forward to meeting you soon.
