Erin is a graduate student in Integrative Biology at UC-Berkeley. She studies the evolution and development of morphological diversity in the Patel Lab, and is particularly interested in how evolving regulatory networks allow for the evolution of integrated function and holistic change. Non-sciency interests include sunshine, training to join the circus, and Caspian - the best dog ever.
Alex is a graduate student in the Molecular and Cell Bio program. He's interested in science and in empowering the general population by making science make sense.
Daniel is a graduate student in Chemistry at U.C. Berkeley. He studies Quantum Information in Birgitta Whaley's group. He has yet to explain what that actually means in less than twenty minutes.
Georgeann Sack is a postdoctoral neuroscientist in Marla Feller's lab at UC Berkeley. You can find more of her writing on www.activescientist.com and can follow her on Twitter @ActiveScientist.
Holly is a graduate student in the Chemistry at UC Berkeley. She studies solvated electron dynamics with ultrafast spectroscopy in the Neumark group.
Kristina is a graduate student in the Integrative Biology department studying avian reproductive neuroendocrinology. When she's not at the bench, she enjoys running, learning new languages, and figure drawing.
Levi is a graduate student in neuroscience. He studies regeneration in the adult nervous system, and he is very fond of stem cells, in addition to neurons. He once led a sheep brain dissection with six inmates at San Quentin as part of a neuroscience course within prison walls, and he hopes to someday use science to effect change in society.

Anna is a graduate student in the Chemistry department at UC Berkeley. Her days are mostly spent making nanomaterials and hoping they will turn out to be useful for solar energy conversion.
Psych Your Mind
Psych Your Mind is a blog written by a team of graduate students from the UC Berkeley Psychology Department. Their blog presents cutting-edge psychology research that helps us better understand why people think, feel, and behave the way they do. Each Wednesday, the BSR Blog cross-lists a recent post from Psych Your Mind in a series we are calling Psych Wednesdays. You can check out their author bios here.
