I’m a microscopist and science communicator always on the lookout for slimy places to observe new microbes. I’m currently wrapping up my PhD in Ecology and Evolution at Rutgers University and I run Couch Microscopy, a multimedia project showcasing the hidden diversity of organisms on the planet. I also host and produce the Tiny Living Beings podcast where I interview a scientist each week about their favorite microbe.
