I'm a biochemist who's passionate about science communication, education, and lifelong learning. I recently graduated with my MS in Biochemistry from Boston College where I studied strategies to combat antibiotic resistance and novel reversible covalent chemistries. Currently, I'm a laboratory technician in the microbiology and immunology department at the Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine (VCOM) and a freelance science writer/editor.
