Stepheni Uh graduated from Emory University with degrees in Neuroscience and Ethics. As the 2014-15 Bobby Jones Fellow, she completed her MPhil in Behavioural and Neural Sciences at the University of St Andrews, Scotland. She has since engaged in exploratory and clinical research at the University of Pennsylvania’s Center for Neuroscience & Society and the Center for Autism Research at the CHOP. Since her time at Emory, she has also collaborated with the Dalai Lama and Emory’s Emory-Tibet Science Initiative, providing unique cross-cultural perspectives into her studies.
Her primary interests lie in the ethical, social, and legal implications of human neuroscience research as well as the translation of science for policy across diverse populations. Stepheni was recently awarded the Gates Cambridge Scholarship to pursue her PhD at the University of Cambridge’s MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit. She will investigate the neurophysiological foundations of resilience in children growing up in poverty with the hope to better inform interventions and policies targeting human development and well-being.
