HHello! My name is Maud Dias (she/her/hers), I am a second year PhD student working in Dr. Tepper's Sensory Science Lab. My undergraduate degree is in chemistry from Reed College. I am originally from Los Angeles, California. I like to sew, knit, do puzzles, and play video games when I am not doing school. I am hoping to use the GSA to have open discussions and create a dialogue about mental, physical, and spiritual health during these intense times. The world of academia can be difficult, but hopefully with friends and a sense of community it will be better. I am passionate about creating a space for gender and ethnic minorities and queer folks. If you have any questions about the GSA, mental and physical health resources, imposter syndrome, (low key chemistry too), or anything at all please feel free to contact me.
