As a graduate student at UC Berkeley, I studied plant responses to disease. But I always found time to slip away from the lab bench and communicate about science, whether I was visiting K-12 classrooms, hosting science tables at farmers markets, or sipping a beverage while co-hosting PubScience. Since graduating, I have enjoyed a unique postdoctoral position with a science communication group at UC Berkeley. I have used this opportunity to work on sharing science through writing, speaking, teaching, and listening. I look forward to learning much more this summer with the team at Ensia while exploring beautiful Minnesota!
