hello! i'm mariel:

a creative technologist and neuroengineering undergrad at Brown University, passionately curious about brains, embodiment, and human-centered impactful systems. I believe that for the first time in history, thanks to technologies like brain-machine interfaces, we are expanding what it means to be human and are capable of driving our own evolution. I want to be a force in that revolution. 

CURRENTLY: I’m working on an EdTech startup called monthly as the curriculum development lead/all-purpose Swiss Army Knife. We launch this summer! While in the Bay Area, I’m also working with Dorm Room Fund’s summer team to bring companies in to pitch. Finally, I’m writing up a report on emerging trends in HealthTech through a series of interviews with some of the most visionary and impactful entrepreneurs in the area.

More than anything else, I love to connect. Send me an email at so I can make you tea and we can talk. Find me on Medium and LinkedIn, too.
