I work in the Dr. Taylor worm lab at the University of Alaska Fairbanks looking at the aging and neurodegeneration via the insulin-like pathway in C. elegans. As a new member of the microbiology community, I'm interested in improving society's understanding of biology and science and fostering cross communication between scientists and the public. Open source and DIY Bio are awesome opportunities for scientist and those interested in science. I'm very excited about this direction.
