It's the 20th installment of this series, and the first one of the new year. Happy 2015! You Should Know introduces you to scientists (and engineers), science blogs and now science communicators that offer value information via social media to wider and broader audiences.

Introducing…Nadia Myrthil and A Lady in Neurophilosophy

Lady in Neurophilosophy is a new website. Ms. Myrthil is a long form blogger. Her back ground in philosophy and her current interests to become a Neurosurgeon come together on the page.

Nadia Myrthil is a research assistant in Neurosurgery at the University of Miami Brain Tumor Initiative Area. Her focus is on brain tumors/cancer in adults and children. She received her BA in Philosophy with a minor in communications in 2013, and is now working on her BS in Biological sciences. She is slated to graduate in 2016.

In her own words:

"I write about and challenge past and current ideas in Neurophilosophy."

I hope you’re enjoying this series of blog posts. If so, then I’d love to shine the spotlight on additional science blogs and scientists and help spread the word of amazing science outreach. If you know of a great science blog and/or science blogger who you think is amazing and would like to help spread the word about how amazing they are then submit them. Now accepting recommendations for upcoming Outreach Scientist and Science Communicator Spotlight for upcoming weeks.
