My life has strayed far from my embryonic introduction to biotechnology in the late 80s, and working with the GenEx2 Team has afforded me the opportunity to get up-close and personal with the rapid-fire advances the field realized in the 90s. My past work has included assessing biogenic DMS contributions to acid rain, studying sewer "slugs" to the San Francisco Bay, assessing effective crude dispersants in arctic waters, implementing recycling programs in arctic villages, and making birch syrup.

Currently, I am on sabbatical from my role as an Environmentalist on the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, where I work to educate our staff in best management of the pipeline environment (protecting animal habitat, maintaining air quality standards, implementing successful and effective revegetation of disturbed areas, etc.). This is my second Antarctic season with Dr. Murray, and my interest in all things naked to the eye — and how they morph on a molecular level — grows each day.
