Andrew Huberman Education

Huberman received his early education from Gunn High School and Foothill College. He then joined the University of California, Santa Barbara graduating in 1998 with a B.A. in Psychology. In 2000  he earned an M.A. in Psychology from the University of California, Berkeley, and a PhD in Neuroscience from the University of California, Davis in 2004. While at Berkeley, Huberman originally approached Carla J. Shatz to serve as his doctoral advisor; however, she declined the offer, concerned that he had a limited background in molecular and cellular biology and that she would be moving her lab to Harvard. Carla encouraged Huberman to transfer to the University of California, Davis, and reach out to Barbara Chapman.

Additionally, he obtained a Postdoc in Neuroscience from Stanford University in 2010. For his dissertation, he received the Allan G. Marr Prize for Best Ph.D. Dissertation in 2005.

Andrew Huberman Parents

Andrew is the son of Bernardo Huberman, an Argentine physicist and Stanford professor. His mother is an American children’s book author. He grew up alongside his elder sister. However, at the age of 12, his parents divorced. After his parents’ divorce, Andrew disengaged from traditional academics and was interested in skateboarding. He also briefly considered a firefighting career.

Andrew Huberman Wife/Girlfriend

Andrew has managed to keep his marital status a secret away from the limelight. However, recently, there was a social media uproar after he was accused of a network of affairs behind his partner’s back as she underwent IVF treatment. Andrew was accused of dating five ladies and making them believe they were in exclusive relationships in a recent investigation by New York Magazine.

One woman, whom the publication calls Sarah, says she was in a relationship with Andrew for around three years and had been undergoing IVF treatment to have a child with him when she found he had been having unprotected sex with at least five other women at the same time. Her suspicions were aroused when she contracted a high-risk form of HPV, a sexually transmitted infection linked to cervical cancer, despite having been tested for ten years.

A spokesperson for Andrew denied the couple intended to have children together, clarifying that they “decided to create embryos by IVF”. The spokesperson also insisted he had not been in a monogamous relationship with Sarah until late 2021, although he appears to suggest elsewhere that he could have given her that impression.

Along with Sarah, others known only as Eve, Mary, Alex, and an unknown fifth and potentially sixth, were all romantically associated with him – some having been led to believe they were exclusive for years. All believed that other exes in Andrew’s life had been “stalkers, alcoholics, and compulsive liars” according to the report.


The news split social media, with some people angry and others confused, including his six million Instagram followers.

Andrew Huberman Podcast (Huberman Lab)

Huberman is a neuroscientist and tenured professor in the department of neurobiology and by courtesy, psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Stanford School of Medicine. He has made numerous significant contributions to the fields of brain development, brain function, and neural plasticity, which is the ability of our nervous system to rewire and learn new behaviors, skills, and cognitive functioning.

Huberman is a McKnight Foundation and Pew Foundation Fellow and was awarded the Cogan Award in 2017, given to the scientist making the most significant discoveries in the study of vision. His laboratory’s most recent work focuses on the influence of vision and respiration on brain states such as fear and high attention focus and developing rapid and effective tools for mitigating stress, improving sleep, and other physiological metrics.

The Huberman Laboratory at Stanford School of Medicine has published work in top journals such as Nature, Science, and Cell, and top media outlets like TIME, BBC, Scientific American, and Discover.

In 2021, Huberman launched the Huberman Lab podcast. The podcast is often ranked in the global top 10. It is often ranked #1 in Science, Education, and Health and Fitness.

Alongside hosting the Huberman Lab podcast, Huberman is the co-founder of Scicomm Media and invests in and advises a handful of businesses.

Andrew Huberman Book

Huberman hasn’t authored any book. However, he has contributed to numerous scientific publications and has been featured in various books and articles related to neuroscience and brain health. He has also recommended several books to his followers.

Andrew Huberman Tattoo

At the tender age of 14, Andrew had started creating “knickknack tattoos” using Indian ink and a needle. Today, his tattoos extend from his neck to his wrists, covering his chest, back, and the tops of his shoulders. The tattoos include various designs that reflect his interests and experiences. He also has a picture of his beloved dog Costello and his paw print immortalized on his back, as well as a tribute to another dog he used to have.

Andrew Huberman Morning Routine

Huberman being a neuroscientist and educator, emphasizes the importance of a structured morning routine for optimal productivity and well-being. His ultimate morning routine involves:

  • Morning Sunlight Exposure (10 minutes)
  • Hydration and Delayed Caffeine Intake (90-120 minutes post-waking)
  • Exercise Routine (Alternating between cardio and weight training)
  • Mindful Work Session (90 minutes)
  • Post-Lunch Rest (10-30 minutes)
  • Evening Sunlight Exposure (10-15 minutes)

Huberman emphasizes the importance of setting a healthy circadian rhythm by getting sunlight in the morning to boost alertness. He also advises delaying caffeine intake for 90 to 120 minutes after waking up to avoid mid-morning crashes. In addition, he recommends a balanced workout routine, including cardio and weight training, followed by a 90-minute focused work session, which he calls a “neural tuning” period. After lunch, he suggests a 10 to 30-minute rest or hypnosis to enhance neuroplasticity for faster learning. Huberman also recommends catching some evening sunlight to reinforce the body’s circadian clock.
