Founder & Senior Editor
I am currently a postdoctoral scholar in the Limeri Lab at Texas Tech University. In my research, I explore how instructors influence classroom climate and student outcomes. I also study teaching practices that help retain students from underrepresented communities and promote science identity. In my free time, I like to binge watch horror movies, cuddle up with my pets, and love to go camping and hiking.
I am currently a M.S. student at Illinois State University. I’m a member of the Sadd Lab, and my research investigates the outcomes of parasite co-infections in bumble bee hosts. When I’m not in the lab, I enjoy reading, music, and dreaming up my next travel adventure!
I am currently working as a Research Analyst in the Crop Science field. I received my B.S. in Biology with a focus in Neuroscience from Illinois State University. During my free time, I enjoy music, reading books, running and hiking.
I’m a PhD student in the Weber Lab at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. We study fish to understand how animals evolve in response to new environments. I became interested in the connection between the environment and evolution because of my job as a Forest Service field biologist collecting environmental data (I spent my days wading through streams and hiking around mountains) and my undergraduate research experience in population genetics at the University of North Florida. In my free time I enjoy camping, hiking, reading, concerts, and fancy cocktail bars.
I am currently a PhD candidate in Biology at Illinois State University. I am a member of the Sadd-Sakaluk Lab and my research investigates the role of proteins that male crickets transfer to females when mating. When not doing grad school things, I enjoy watching tv, houseplants (good at buying, bad at caring for), and mild hiking.
I am currently a PhD student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the Rodriguez Lab. I aim to study animal cognition using spiders. When I’m not busy with research or other various schoolwork, I enjoy playing basketball, board games, and annoying my cat Ollivander (aka Ollie).
I have a Master’s degree in Political Science concentrating in Community and Economic Development. I hope to continue working on projects that engage, uplift, and strengthen communities. In my spare time I enjoy long bike rides rides, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and meditation.
