Associate Writer, Editor
Eser Yilmaz is a neuroscientist and science writer. She is interested in the biological basis of behavior and how biophilia and nature therapy can help achieve optimal physical and mental health outcomes. She enjoys spending time outdoors, losing herself in a good book, and crocheting something unique.
