Emily Siff


Emily J. Siff is a 3rd year neuroscience PhD student in the Carlson Lab. She studies the insect nervous system via behavioral and computational approaches. Previously, Siff achieved cognitive science (MS), neuroscience (BS), and creative writing (BA) degrees at Brown University. She has experience with — and enthusiasm for — biological, cognitive, and computational research.

At her core, Siff has two dreams: (1) to ensure science and medicine have better access to rigorous, accurate statistical methods and (2) to address the (often related) challenges of intersectional accessibility and the climate crisis.
