Jennifer recently graduated with a PhD in Molecular, Cell, and Developmental Biology and is now a postdoctoral researcher studying the formation and function of neural circuits in the brain. In her spare time, she acts as a freelance science consultant in the health and nutrition field. Long-term, Jennifer is interested in a career where she can provide college- and graduate-level students with the communication skills critical for success in the sciences.
Sean is a 4th year PhD student in Earth, Planetary, and Space Sciences. Despite coming into graduate school primarily interested in planets around other stars, he found himself gravitating towards the climate of Earth, with his thesis research focusing on Earth’s summer monsoons. The love for space has never left though; Sean is fascinated by the complex processes occurring on any planet, from Earth to Mars to Titan to still undiscovered exoplanets, and enjoys writing about such topics as much as possible. He is also interested in STEM outreach and education, particularly for children from underserved communities.
Jeff is a 5th year PhD student in the department of Microbiology, Immunology, and Molecular Genetics at UCLA. His current research focuses on motility mechanisms of the bacterial pathogen Burkholderia pseudomallei. Jeff is a passionate advocate for enthusiastic sicence education and engaging outreach. He has a keen interest in increasing the participation and visibility of historically underrepresented groups in science, and has been recognized for his efforts in advocating for LGBT and female scientists. Outside the lab, he has worked with groups such as Two Bit Circus and CityLab at UCLA to engage middle and high school students from underperforming schools in science education through creative and hands on endeavors. Jeff believes in the importance of curiosity, creativity, and community to immerse ourselves in the shared scientific journey we call the human experience.
