On Tuesday, Sept 5th 2017 our lab is off to Nuuk, Greenland to present our research at the Polar and Alpine Microbiology (PAM) conference!
June 25th - 30th, 2017 I'll be attending the Dartmouth Science and Diplomacy in the Arctic workshop to learn more about the role of science in Arctic Policy. Activities will include a model Arctic Council meeting, as well as lectures on Arctic diplomacy.
Look for updates here.
I'm a graduate student at the University of Washington in Oceanography and Astrobiology. My interests focus on bacteria and bacteriophage viruses in extreme environments, namely cold, briney sea ice in the Arctic and Southern oceans, and how knowledge of these bacteria informs the search for life on cold bodies in our solar system and beyond. I work in the Deming Lab at the UW, and in collaboration with a group of engineers and scientists at CalTech using microscopy for life detection.
In addition to scientific research, I have an interest in science for both the public policy and outreach. I am interested in policy in the Arctic, and how scientific research of the environment can inform decision making on international scales. In addition, my science communication focuses on human elements of research and discovery in written and broadcast media.
