Lecturer, public speaker, and life coach extraordinaire, Dr. Marwa Azab has built her career around finding answers to why we do what we do. In her academic career, Azab has completed both a masters in counseling in Toronto, Canada and a PhD in neuroscience from the University of California, Irvine. With this expertise in psychology and human behavior, she has taught at the University of California, Long Beach and other undergraduate campuses since 2003. Outside of academia, Azab has given talks to listeners of all age groups, and is best known for her two TEDx Talks entitled: "Highly Sensitive: Should you change?" and "The Logical vs The Reflexive Brain: Only One Wins." In this way, she is dedicated to spreading her knowledge to as many people as possible, and believes that only through interdisciplinary approaches can we understand the complex intersections of biology, genetics, brain function, life events, ethnicity, gender, and other factors of human experience. One can find many of her published works online as well as in academic journals, as Dr. Azab is a frequent contributor to the Huffington Post and Elephant Journal.
