Meet Dr. Ali Mattu, the geeky Columbia University clinical psychologist who wants to make psychology, the brain, and behavioral sciences fun and easy to understand. 

Transcript:

I'm Dr. Ali Mattu. 

I've got a Ph.D. in clinical psychology and I spend most of my days working at Columbia University where I treat anxiety and depression.

But I'm not your typical psychologist. 

I'm a huge geek! 

From Star Trek to Star Wars, I love everything science fiction. 

When I got to college I realized there's a whole science that answers all the questions science fiction raises - PSYCHOLOGY! 

Psychology is all about the scientific study of what we think and what we do. 

Everything clicked for me in that moment as a freshmen in college and realized what my purpose in life is - it's to become a psychologist. 

So I spent the next decade of my life studying psychology. After I finished my training I wanted to find new ways to help other people discover the awesomeness that is psychology. 

That's what The Psych Show is all about each week I'll use my geeky background to make psychology fun and easy to understand.
