Andrea Mendez Colmenares


Andrea is a Venezuelan medical doctor and cognitive neuroscientist specializing in advanced white matter imaging. She recently completed a Ph.D. in Cognitive Neuroscience from Colorado State University, USA, and is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the BRAiN Lab in Colorado. Andrea is also actively involved in initiatives supporting neurology applicants (e.g., @NMatch2024) and research career development for international medical graduates. In her free time, she is usually playing guitar or climbing a mountain!

Sridhara Yaddanapudi


Sridhara is a board-certified internist, neurologist, vascular neurologist, and hypertension specialist. Currently, he holds the position of Clinical Assistant Professor at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital and serves as the Director of Neurology for Jefferson New Jersey.As a medical professional, he is passionate about case-based learning, clinical reasoning, and teaching decision-making while avoiding the pitfalls of heuristics. His goal is to bridge the ever-growing gap between neurology and internal medicine, an area in which he has a keen interest.

 Maria Jimena Aleman


María Jimena Alemán was born and raised in Guatemala where she currently works in community and rural health care. After suffering from long standing neurophobia, she has embraced her love for neurology and will pursue a career in this field. She looks forward to dedicating her life to breaking barriers for Latin women in medical fields and improving medical care in her country. Her life probably has a soundtrack of a mix between Shakira and Ella Fitzgerald. Outside of medicine, she enjoys modern art, 21st century literature, and having hour-long conversations over a nice hot cup of coffee or tequila.
