Debra shares her life as a grant-writing postdoc and her current path toward a research-focused faculty position. She explains how her cognitive neuroscience and bioengineering backgrounds prepared her for the autism research she does now at Stanford University.

She tells us it's important to be visible as a black female neuroscientist, why diversity is not enough, and that we need inclusion as well. She seamlessly blends her professional work with her life as a social justice advocate.
