My name is Danbee (단비), which literally translated from Korean means
“sweet rain”. Many of my friends call me tauntaun, a nickname coined
during my freshman year at MIT when I was part of the Musical Theater Guild’s production of Star Wars Trilogy: Musical Edition.

I’m a PhD student in London, UK at the Sainsbury-Wellcome Center for
Neural Circuits and Behavior. I study cuttlefish, develop theories of
intelligent behaviour, and synthesize art with neuroscience. You can
learn more at our research group’s website, Every Mind Online.

I spend a lot of time thinking about permaculture, anarchy, circus,
and education. I love spending time in the wilderness, especially by the
sea. I’ve co-written an original musical called Hack, Punt, Tool (you can watch the 2017 production on YouTube). I’m a member of the band Scubaphone and the capoeira group Mandingueiros dos Palmares, led by Mestre Chuvisco.
