I am a lesbian and I am a biologist and science communicator.//

I’ve always been a science nerd, but in grad school I shifted my focus to science communication and started thinking beyond how science is being communicated to who is doing the communicating. Even now it can be challenging to find LGBTQ+ role models in STEM — I am comfortably out and open in part because I have a very public job and work with young people who may be looking for representation. These days I create exhibits and programming for a science centre and in my spare time I write pop science books.
