Today's featured scientist, is someone I first heard speak on an episode of Neil DeGrasse Tyson's podcast, "Star Talk". Since then, I've seen her speak on multiple shows online and off including: BBC America, CBS, CNN, Current TV, Fox, Fox News, G4tv, Nat Geo WILD, Science Channel, SundanceTV, and the Travel Channel. She is also a regularly on The Young Turks show. It's my absolute pleasure to write an article today about the wonderful and talented, Cara Santa Maria.

From the moment I heard Cara, I could feel the passion she has for science, logic, and reason. I didn't have to just feel it though. Cara is extremely vocal about what she fights for. Before we get to that though, let's go back a little. 

Prior to her career in media, Cara taught biology and psychology courses to university undergraduates and high school students in Texas and New York. Her published research has spanned various topics, including clinical psychological assessment, the neuropsychology of blindness, neuronal cell culture techniques, and computational neurophysiology.
