Sonia Shechet Epstein works at the intersection of science and culture. As Executive Editor of the Museum of the Moving Image’s Sloan Science & Film initiative, she produces all content and manages activities related to Sloan Science & Film at the Museum. Sonia also curates the ongoing film series "Science on Screen" which pairs rarely shown films with discussions between scientists and filmmakers. Since its founding in 2014, Sonia has been a mentor at the New Museum's organization NEW INC–the first museum-led incubator to support practitioners working at the intersection of art and technology. She has lectured internationally about the intersection of sciecne and film. Sonia is currently a Master's candidate in Experimental Humanities at NYU.

Kandel at Columbia University preparing his book, The Age of Insight, and helping to produce 24 episodes of the BRAIN SERIES for PBS.
