Jordan Hay


  • Organization
    Perry Hay LLP

  • Role
    Scientist Mentor: I will mentor teams of students online

  • Research Interests (300 words)
    My research interests have centered on quantitative analysis of plant growth and development.

  • Do you have previous experience in mentorship or educational outreach? Please list here (200 words)
    I have served as a mentor for PlantingScience, undergraduate biology students, and undergraduate interns doing summer research programs sponsored by the Department of Energy.

  • Which of the following best describes your career stage?

  • Profile Question 1
    What is your favorite plant? Why?

  • Answer the question you selected for profile question 1 here (300 words):
    One of my favorite plants is rice because rice is life for so many people all over the world.

  • Profile Question 2
    What is the coolest thing you have discovered or learned about plants?

  • Answer the question you selected for profile question 2 here (300 words):
    Plants are dynamic. It is often hard to see but plants are growing and moving all around. Plants are also very important -- how we breathe and eat are a few good examples of our dependence on plants.

  • Profile Question 3
    What lessons have you learned in your career about how science works?

  • Answer the question you selected for profile question 3 here (300 words):
    Science is exciting and fun. Science is challenging. It is an iterative process. Even the most carefully planned experiments are usually refined at some point.

  • Help represent the outreach efforts of your societies. Please click all those organizations you are a member of:

Hello PlantingScientists. Hope your experiments are going well. What do the experimental results suggest, and how can you explain them using what you've learned in class?

Thanks for the update. Glad to hear the plants are completing their life cycle. Do you know what is the specific name of the life cycle of plants?

Hi team. How is your research going? Any new findings on genetics, growth and development under artificial lighting versus natural sunlight?
