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.

On Science and the Practice of It

Science is not a heartless pursuit of objective information; it is a creative human activity.

Stephen Jay Gould

Approach change with curiosity.

Carissa Gay

Science and everyday life cannot and should not be separated.

Rosalind Franklin

The stupider one is, the clearer one is. Stupidity is brief and artless, while intelligence wriggles and hides itself. Intelligence is a knave, but stupidity is honest and straightforward.

Fyodor Dostoyevsky

It is very unfortunate if your theory predicts the presence of negative rabbits.

Stuart Kauffman

There is no nobler aspiration of the human intellect than desire to compass the cause of things.
