In case you’re interested, I’m a graduate of Reed College (BA) and Brown University (PhD), then did post-doctoral research at Washington University and the University of Chicago. I taught evolutionary biology at Swarthmore College from 1997 to 2011. Prior to all the academic stuff I baked cakes for Denison University’s president (back when I was a teen). Yo Yo Ma said my lemon cake was delicious.
Random fun facts: I’ve been hit by lightning, stuck in quicksand, and tear-gassed. I was with my mom for two of these events.
If my posts have brought you happiness in some way and you’d like to buy me a virtual coffee, you can do that via my ko-fi page. Or surprise me with a book from my Amazon wishlist. For those wanting to help me even more, you can donate to my GoFundMe campaign (a pesticide company is suing me for alerting the EPA).
