Weiji Ma, Ph.D is a professor of psychology and neural science at NYU. In this episode, we discuss his bizarre childhood — he graduated from high school at 14, from college at 16, and with his Ph.D in theoretical physics at 22 — how he decides it's time to pivot, his "delusions of grandeur," how to identify a toxic mentor (and find a great one), how he keeps science human-centered, and more. Read his full bio on psychmic.com.
