About

Fabiana Kubke: Neuroscience/Education/Open.
a.k.a. @kubke on twitter (and pretty much everywhere else).

I am a neu­ro­science researcher and teacher at the Uni­ver­sity of Auck­land.
Every­thing we do is ulti­mately con­trolled by the brain, and I am fas­ci­nated by the diver­sity of behav­iours that can be seen in dif­fer­ent ani­mals. I am try­ing to under­stand how dif­fer­ent brain organ­i­sa­tions allow the dif­fer­ent behav­iours to emerge in dif­fer­ent ani­mals and how that is achieved through devel­op­ment and evo­lu­tion.
I am a big fan of sci­ence and edu­ca­tion and am try­ing to do my best to fol­low the lead of those who are mak­ing it acces­si­ble to everybody.

I am an Academic Editor for PLOS ONE and PeerJ and Chair of the Advisory Board of Creative Commons Aotearoa New Zealand. My views are my own and do  not necessarily represent those of the organisations I am affiliated with.

    I am try­ing to under­stand how dif­fer­ent institutional organ­i­sa­tions allow dif­fer­ent behavior to emerge in dif­fer­ent people, and how this is achieved through professional devel­op­ment and adaptation.

      Ha! Isn’t that the question we all have, eh? :) I’d love to be able to even scratch the surface of that. One place I keep an eye on is the Bioengineering Institute at UoAKL. They do a lot of work in the open space. Peter Hunter provides great leadership, and he might be a good brain to pick for that.
