1. Introduce yourself, who are you what do you do? I’m Sofia. I head a small research team at the MDC in Berlin that use computational methods and high-throughput sequencing to understand health and disease, especially how interactions between human host and gut microbiota interact to affect this. 2. How did you arrive at this career (or point in your life/work)? Was it always something you knew you wanted to do? I...
1. Introduce yourself, who are you what do you do? I’m Sofía Macchiavelli Girón, a Puerto Ricanscientist. I’m currently PhD Candidate in the Department of Plant Pathology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I study a disease of potato called silver scurf. My research involves finding innovative ways to manage and study this disease in order to reduce its negative impacts on the local and national...
1. Introduce yourself, who are you what do you do? My name is Dr Madeline Mitchell and I’m a plant scientist at CSIRO in Canberra, Australia. I use biotechnology and synthetic biology to make new crops to benefit consumers, farmers and the environment. My current research focuses on engineering cotton fibres with new and unique properties so we can have biodegradable, renewable alternatives to polluting, plastic-based...
1. Introduce yourself, who are you what do you do? My name is Dr. Justyna Hampel and I am a biogeochemist and microbial ecologist. I study cycling of nitrogen in lakes and estuaries and toxic algal blooms. For my PhD work I got to work on lakes in China, Florida, and Ohio. I grew up in Poland and came to the US for my undergrad and PhD. In May, I will be starting a postdoctoral research position in marine science studying...
1. Say hi :) who are you what do you do? Hi, my name is Dr. Tracy Fanara, and I work to extend humanity’s time on earth.  I run a research program at Mote Marine Laboratories where we perform experiments, develop technology, and design strategies to protect public health and water quality. My expertise is in sustainable design, so working to restore the earth's natural water cycle through innovative engineering....
