My name is Mike Feigin and I study cancer biology. I like punk rock, baseball and cooking.
I’m Emily, a particle physicist. The experiment I work on is located at a nuclear power plant in the French countryside. You can see the cooling towers and reactor buildings behind me. I love science and I enjoy writing about it — you can read my blog at weakinteractions.tumblr.com.
I am interested in combining classical virology and computational biology to provide an overarching view of what happens in a cell or a whole organism during a viral infection. My PhD research at Columbia University centered on picornavirus inhibition of the interferon response, while my postdoctoral work at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai focused on innate immune responses to flaviviruses such as dengue virus and yellow fever virus. I currently research the host response to avian influenza at the University of Washington. When I am not studying virus-host interactions, I mentor young scientists and design science education tools.
Anne Weaver. I am a paleoanthropologist (I study human evolution) and an author (The Voyage of the Beetle, Children of Time).
My name is Lirios Gisbert Emmerich, a biologist and specialist in ichthyology. I work in Alaska Fisheries Science Center, National Marine Fisheries Service.
I study the behavior of certain types of fish and crustaceans in Alaska. The mission of the Alaska Fisheries Science Center is the generation of scientific information and analysis necessary for the conservation, management and utilization of marine resources in the region to live.
I do not dance ;)
I am a soil scientist/resource specialist for the Indiana State Department of Agriculture, Division of Soil Conservation. I spend my spare time poking around outside, camping (as here, in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula), reading comic books, watching films of almost any sort, and writing terrible short stories.
Hello. I am Arron Rumsey, a PhD student in Particle Cosmology at Lancaster University, UK.
Hi! My name is Marie. I love biology. As a molecular oncologist with an emphasis in murine genetics and models of cancer, I identified some of the SNPs responsible for tumorigenesis and metastasis. I’m now an application scientist in a biotech company. Thank you for starting this project! This is what a scientist looks like!
