Originally from California, where there are no flashing fireflies, Sarah vividly remembers the first time she saw the displays of these enchanting insects during her PhD work at the University of Georgia. An evolutionary biologist, she is fascinated by firefly biology and genomes. Recently, you may have heard her on NPR's Science Friday discussing the evolution of firefly flash color. She enjoys hunting for fireflies while hiking with her new puppy, Bjorn.
