About Neil P. Bardhan, Ph.D.
Thanks for visiting my website to learn more about me and the work I do to help technical professionals share their stories. I can't wait to hear yours.
I studied cognitive science at The Johns Hopkins University and then earned a Ph.D. in Brain and Cognitive Sciences at the University of Rochester. I have found how humans speak to -- and hear -- each other to be fascinating. My academic path led me to research psycholinguistics in The Netherlands and to teach undergraduates in Germany.
Science professionals have so many reasons to talk about their work. I shifted my professional focus from researching cognitive science to applying it in technical presentations. Since the shift, I have also trained in improvisational theater and storytelling with several groups, including in Philadelphia, where I live and base my work. My own experiences performing have helped form a foundation of the approaches I use when coaching individuals or leading team exercises. In addition, I have a certificate in mediation and conflict resolution. My toolkit for facilitating communication continues to grow. If you'd like to learn more, let's talk.
