My name is Alex Samoy-Alvarado, and I am happy to once again be a part of the Neuroscience and Cognitive Science Program here at the University of Arizona. I graduated from the NSCS program in 2014 with an emphasis in Learning and Memory (now called the Cognition emphasis). I used my knowledge of learning and memory to teach middle school and high school students math and science for three years at a local charter school. While teaching, I discovered my passion for helping youth achieve at their highest possible level, academically and otherwise. I am excited to bring that passion back to the table that served me, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to aid the young and brilliant minds of the NSCS community as an academic advisor. Outside of work, I am a musician at heart. I teach the drumline at Rincon/University High School, I play drums for a local band, and I am a bit of a bedroom music producer for fun on the side. When I’m not immersed in music, I love interacting with people. Please feel free to get in touch with me via phone, email, or in person. I look forward to meeting you!
