After 14 years of working on neurodegenerative diseases, traveling to over 30 countries, and eating lots of food, Mahin launched a food and design lifestyle brand, Substantial Living, to create and share her life experiences with others. She found the best times in her life, where she was able to connect to others, regardless of status, location, etc, was over food. We all have to eat! She loves creating simple, global recipes in her kitchen-much like working in a lab. She still finds her inspiration through nature and science, and weaves that into her food and design, and hopes that not only can we connect to each other, but to everything around us, like nature, and live a more Substantial life.
Mahin has a BS from the UC Davis in neurobiology, and a MBA from Babson College. Her scientific work can be seen in Fortune Magazine, WSJ, NYTimes, and scientific journals. She loves the ocean, design, music, travel, and reading.
