Simon/Simone (they/their) is a PhD Candidate in the R.W. Tsien Lab at the NYU Neuroscience Institute and a young scientist and artist.

Their research focuses on the importance of neural processes in the brain that maintain chemical and electrical balance. Other scientific topics that they are exploring include, cellular and systems correlates of neuropsychiatric diseases, sleep, and sensory brain function. They previously worked in the G.S. Walsh Lab studying how the nervous system assembles itself during early development and was awarded a MSc for their work.

Their music and art tries to unify the rational and emotional domains of science and art by giving emotional drives to science, and rational inquiry to art. Neither intrinsically lacks the either, though we tend to treat them that way. Their current project SÉN, uses their own experimental data they've acquired and giving it life through electronic music. Past works include orchestral, chamber, and solo compositions.
