Answer the question you selected for profile question 2 here (300 words):
For most scientists, I'd say there's no such thing as a typical day. In plant science, a lot of our research is dictated by the season. My project involves work in the lab, field, greenhouse, and of course, the computer.
In the winter, I spend a lot of time on my computer doing data analysis, reading more about my research topic, and doing lab experiments.
In the spring, I'm preparing my plants for the field by taking care of them in the greenhouse and generally spend my afternoons working on my computer.
In the summer, I'm out in the field several days a week collecting data on my plots and making sure everything is healthy while also helping out with the rest of the breeding program's activities.
In the fall, field season is winding down, but crossing season in the greenhouses is happening, so I spend my mornings in the greenhouse and afternoons working on my computer.
