Hmmm...I don't seem to have a biographer. So I think I must put something autobiographical here. I'll keep it concise and relevant. In 2014 I went to a meetup at Berkeley Biolabs, an incubator/biohacker space. There in the lab someone put a pipette in my hand and showed me how to use it. This was my introduction to molecular biology and I found it a fascinating area to study. I am one who enjoys doing wetwork. Since then I have been attending many meetups, and have been fortunate to meet highly qualified scientists who have allowed me to work with them in the lab and have shown me the way when I am lost in the molecular forest. My eternal gratitude is theirs, and I would not be planning this experiment if it were not for their generosity and patience.
