I am a scientific writer, independent researcher, and mom of three. My scientific background includes laboratory work in infectious disease and plant breeding and field work in agricultural science.
Currently, I am working on a metascience project inspired by my own and colleagues' experiences in life science research and by my reading in ancient/historical science (Humble Science Project)
PhD Chemical Biology, Harvard University, April 2015.
Dissertation research on malaria transmission at the Harvard School of Public Health (where I first encountered EA ideas)
BS Plant Science, Cornell University, January 2008.
I am looking to connect with other people working on metascience or related challenges.
I may be able to answer questions about the scientific fields I've worked in (besides infectious disease and agricultural science, I've dabbled in wildlife biology and I've had some experiences working with the Pharma industry).
