About

I am a PhD student, biotech researcher, and science communicator.

Growth as a STEM grad student requires a lot of reading. I’m able to track many of these papers and what I’ve learned from them here.

This is also a student support blog. That means science, student life, study tips, the after-college job hunt, and an occasional random topic in the name of work/life balance.

Our sister organization, Mentors Now, has a STEM-themed Instagram page and career-advice YouTube channel.

You can send questions, comments, etc. to info [at] biobythebay.com.
