Postdoctoral Fellow

Austin is equal parts neuroscientist and dancer. Naturally, being a postdoctoral fellow with the Surmeier group studying movement disorders such as Parkinson's disease and Huntington's disease is a perfect intersection in the Venn diagram of his life.

He loves sharing knowledge and helping others understand the complexities of the brain. Sometimes, he won't stop unless you yell at him. Seriously.
