Dr Samantha Yammine | Neuroscientist
As a neuroscientist, Dr Samantha Yammine has been paying attention to the impact of the pandemic on women, and on people’s anxiety. Her tips on managing stress and building resilience resonate. She also knows that research shows using an image of your face when engaging online increases engagement by 38% — a selfie or Zoom video is more relatable. She’s on a mission to make science and STEM more accessible for women and girls and her following of often over 4million views per day shows the impact of her approach. She believes showing who you are as a scientist is just as much about what you actually do in a lab as who you are outside. | view profile
