In real life I…am a Technology Specialist, trained as a scientist but now I advise scientists, universities, and biotech/pharma companies on their intellectual property and scientific development. Starting (part-time) law school in Sept! I enjoy running, hiking, traveling, cooking, baking, I make really good homemade ice cream. The more excited I get, the higher my voice gets.
Favorite pump up jam: Dolly Parton- “9 to 5, you have to punch the clock and go to work”
One food I could eat forever (disregarding nutrition/practicality): POTATOES! They’re so versatile! mashed potatoes, boiled potatoes, baked potatoes, French fries, curly fries, crinkle cut, steak fries, hash browns, potato pancakes, au gratin, scalloped potatoes, in a soup, in a curry, so. many. options.
My secret talent is: I am the reigning hot dog eating champion of my PhD Lab!
