Ph.D. in Neuroscience & Psychology | Social Entrepreneur
I am an expert on the brain and the mind, with a joint PhD in Psychology and Neuroscience as well as a yoga and mindfulness teacher and practitioner. I am the CEO of a company I founded in 2010, the Centre for Applied Neuroscience Inc. I teach people about their own brains and the brains of those around them through courses at my company and through my university faculty appointment. Understanding the mind and brain helps us be better humans. For example, when we understand our brain and mind, we make better decisions, self-regulate, embrace our emotions, parent better, be better partners, be more conscious and less biased, manage our stress, learn from failing, lead better, resist addictions (including social media addictions), improve mental health and life satisfaction, and generally raise the quality of our life. This brain-based self-awareness philosophy is known as 'Neuropsychoidiology', and is a concept that I coined in 2003 and published in 2016 in my first book, Self Science - A Guide to the Mind and Your Brain's Potential.
