Olivia Goldman, PhD

Co-Founder; Executive Board Secretary

Olivia is a Schmidt Science Postdoctoral Fellow in the SENse Lab at HHMI / University of California, Berkeley. She co-founded Científico Latino in 2016 after realizing how obscure the path to succeeding in STEM graduate school applications is without information and mentorship. She has previous served as a co-founder and co-director of GSMI, and Digital Experience Director. She is passionate about making science accessible to anyone who is curious.

She completed her PhD at The Rockefeller University, advised by Dr. Leslie Vosshall, on chemosensation in mosquitoes, the deadliest animal to humans. Previously, she received her Bachelor of Arts in Neuroscience & Behavior at Barnard College of Columbia University, and then worked as a research technician in the lab of Nobel prize winner Dr. Eric Kandel. She was a fellow of the Women and Science Initiative in 2017, the recipient of the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship in 2019 and was named a Kavli Neural Systems Institute Graduate Fellow in 2021.
