I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Dr. Lauren Drogos for the academic parents edition of the “How I Work” series. Dr. Drogos is an Alberta Innovates Health Solutions Postdoctoral Scholar at the University of Calgary in the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, and the Hotchkiss Brain Institute. She received a B.S in Psychology from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, and a M.A. and Ph.D. in Psychology – Division of Behavioral Neuroscience from the University of Illinois Chicago. Her research across the past decade has focused on the effects of steroid hormones on cognition and mood, with a focus on women’s mental health.
This time, I tried something new – we did the interview through Skype and recorded it for publication on the blog. Let me know how you like this form of the interview series!
Here’s the interview – in which we talk about tech tools, Lauren’s research work, and parenting twins:
(PS: I had my questions on my other screen – that explains my constant looking away from the camera, sorry!)
