Her career as a researcher began in a spinal cord lab while studying movement therapies and dance ethnographies at UCLA. She later earned her Ph.D at the Claremont Graduate University looking at methods of creative practice grounded on contemplative theory and methods.
A Fulbright Scholar and journalist, Dr. G. spent nearly two decades working throughout the Asia-Pacific as a researcher, commentator and collaborator with leading artists, designers and scientists focused on cultural divides and the future of brain/mind development.
Dr. G. is an Adjunct Assoc. Professor at the Art Center College of Design and on the Social Design Graduate Advisory faculty at MICA where she mentors a new generation of creatives who want to 'design with the brain in mind.‘ Dr G is an XPrize Vanguard, a member of the SILC Spatial Studies network, a past Senior Fellow for the Mind/Life Summer Institute and the innovator of the TEDActive mindfulness morning studio. She has published over 200 articles and blogs, posts on the Frontiers of Neuroscience and remains a press member for the Society for Neuroscience and the Neurotechnology Industry Organization.
