Episode 4 Episodes list Episode 6

In this episode, Allison and Sandra sit down to talk to Prof. Dr. Marla Feller about being a woman and a mother in science. We discuss the lack of childcare at universities and the advantages of being a scientist-parent compared to other careers. Marla shares her experience of working in Physics and in Neuroscience and how it felt being the only woman in the room. To learn more about Marla’s scientific journey, watch her talk on feeling like an impostor while switching research fields from Physics to Neuroscience or read about her on Picking Brains to challenge your stereotype of what a “typical” path to becoming a scientist is.
