Hi there,

my name is Pernille and I am a passionate, creative and curious science communicator.

I use my skills in neuroscience research, psychology, and mental health to spread knowledge and create communities.

I grew up in Denmark where I learned the intricacies of hygge, viking-lore, and fairy tales.

I left Denmark at age 21 to pursue my dreams in research and learn what life is like on the other side of the world. This journey led me to Berkeley, California, then to Atlanta, Georgia, a pit-stop in Loxahatchee, Florida, and now, I reside in Boston, Massachusetts.

I am not your average scientist, and I am also not your average communicator. I make science come alive, become relevant, and more importantly, accessible, to the people that need it most. I bring science to the people, and communication to science.

I use my own personal experiences to mentor people with mental health challenges. Please see the “My Story” page (under the “About Pernille” tab) to learn more.

I have started a subscription-based newsletter on a new platform. This is for you, if you are interested in the mind-body connection and mental health.
Check it out here!

Here, we listen, learn, and share.
We ask, wonder, and care.
We dive into the depths of the most complicated matters,
and share our stories to create meaning of, sometimes, painful scatters.
We use the tools of science, and perhaps a little bit of defiance,
to make the world better and kinder,
and as a reminder,
that we will live life with voracity and solicitude.
