Salma is an expat yankee being raised by a pair of spectacularly socially-minded teens who inspire and challenge her daily. She is a faculty scientist and podcast host (Neuroscientists Talk Shop) at the University of Texas at San Antonio, where she devotes her time to developing diversity in the research community. Her interest in ethical spaces originated with the many quandaries at the intersection of research, tech and commerce. More recently she has become beguiled by visionary organizations like ENSA that are building the networks and knowledge infrastructure that will drive our economy to support a balance of equity, sustainability, creativity and profit.  She commits her free time to food, issues of food insecurity and social justice. On the whole she’d like to do more yoga and less baking.
