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.
Audrey is a graduate student in Integrative Biology, studying plant community ecology. When she's not working (and sometimes when she is), she can most reliably be found boppin around the mountains.
Chris is a graduate student in neuroscience. He studies cognitive and computational neuroscience, attempting to link higher-level theories of the mind with information processing in the brain. He used to write a science blog called This Is Your Brain On Awesome, though nowadays you can find his latest personal work at chrisholdgraf.com. Follow him on Twitter at @choldgraf
David is a graduate student in chemistry in the Alivisatos Group. He studies DNA mediated self-assembly of nanoparticles, because it’s interesting, but also because it sounds awesome. He enjoys hiking, archery, and origami (both with paper and with DNA).
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.

Sarah Hillenbrand is a graduate student in the Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute. She studies how the brain learns from errors and rewards to produce movement. In her spare time, she can be found learning from errors and rewards to produce movement.
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.
