Deborah Rozman

What excites you the most about your job?
As the CEO of HeartMath, I love our mission of expanding consciousness and our daily work to help people build resilience and emotional coherence.

Please tell us about your interest in applied brain science. What areas are you most interested in? What motivated you to pursue work in your field?
I am particularly interested in how to improve people’s lives via the neuroscience of stress and emotions.

What is one important thing you are working on now, and where can people learn more about it? 
We are working on ways to make our Heart Rate Variability sensors more accessible and useful to everyone who wants to enhance his or her brain fitness.

What are 1-2 key things you’d like every person to understand regarding his/ her own brain and mind, that you think is commonly misrepresented or not addressed in the popular media? 
That the brain is not only about cognition. The heart’s input to the brain is critical too for cognitive health and optimal performance.

Where do you see clear “low-hanging fruit” to enhance behavioral and brain health based on neuroscience and innovation? 
Partnering with activity monitors to make neurofeedback more consumer-friendly with games and other activities. This is becoming easier as we seem more training on the Cloud.

What surprised you the most at the 2013 SharpBrains Virtual Summit? 
The care and passion of Alvaro Fernandez and the SharpBrains folks to bring everyone together. It did inspire me.

Finally, what do YOU do to stay sharp? 
I use the emWave and Inner Balance HRV coherence feedback to reset through the day and stay clear and sharp.
