Nicole Carlson

Nicole was raised miles away from California in the awesome region known as the Midwest. After kicking it in Minnesota, Ohio, Chicago, and a year abroad in England, she arrived in the Bay Area for physics grad school where she was immediately confused by the fact that there were hills in Berkeley. After recovering from this shock, she settled down to do computational neuroscience research.

When not sleeping on the futon in her office, Nicole likes to find all the free food events on campus and crash them. She also enjoys exploring new restaurants, neighborhoods, concert venues, and finding the nearest Taco Bells. She lives in San Francisco with her awesome pit bull, Cooper, who is the best dog of all time.
