Congratulations, Ashlea Morgan!
Ashlea Morgan is a 6th-year neurobiology and behavior doctoral candidate at Columbia University. In the lab of Mark Ansorge, she researches how serotonin signaling shapes prefrontal function to impact cognitive flexibility behaviors. “I am doing science so I am a scientist. And, I am going to go ahead and say, I am a blogger,” Ashlea wrote for Columbia Researchers Against COVID-19 (CRAC). She reclaimed her titles as "scientist" and "writer" in a follow-up Medium story answering the question: Why hadn’t she called herself a scientist? Whether as an editor/co-founder of the blog "Scientist on the Subway" or as a coordinator for the graduate student-led "Late Night Science" community seminar series, she uses writing and public engagement to fuel and inspire passion for science.
Check out a selection of her work, including one press release from her co-authored paper
