I am someone with way more interests than is good for her.
I like writing. Mostly about science. But other things as well. Here, I like to practice what I’ve learned, turning papers I’ve read into blog posts. The idea is to make science accessible, and hopefully capture a bit of the logical process that goes into thinking like a scientist.
I started Bio by the Bay for three reasons:
- For my community. I know many students passionate about science and this site began with the aim to provide them with extra resources and support.
- Professional development. Honing in on my scientific literacy & communication skills is a personal and professional goal of mine, and this is my own little corner to practice in.
- Just for fun. I love to write, and in the spirit of lifelong learning, I have here a convenient outlet.
