I am very proud to hold a Bachelor of Arts degree from UC Berkeley with a double major in English Literature and Molecular and Cellular Biology. In my final year of undergraduate I wrote over 150 pages of lab reports, essays, and a 50-page honors thesis. Prior to my final year, I had a brief love affair with journalism.
In my alternative universe as a scientist, I have also received acknowledgements from fellow scientists for providing comments and helping to revise their manuscripts. Among them, Seelig, et al.’s 2006 Science paper on “Enzyme-free nucleic acid logic circuits” and Pei, et al.’s 2010 Nature Nanotechnology paper on “Training a molecular automaton to play a game”.
