  • Profile Question 1
    What is best about being a scientist?

  • Answer the question you selected for profile question 1 here (300 words):
    I spend my day asking questions: why does this cactus grow here and not there? Why do birds like this patch of forest? How can we restore this grassland? And then I get to figured out the answers to those questions, which no one else has asked or answered.

    Do you have advice for students about preparing for a science career?

    Science is all about asking questions, so spend time being curious! Spend time outside, take things apart, read about topics that interest you. Along the way, you'll find even more to be curious about.

    What is your favorite plant? Why?

  • Answer the question you selected for profile question 3 here (300 words):
    I love a little plant called fluttermill. It has large, bright yellow flowers that look like giant drops of sunshine. And it makes giant seed pods that have four wings.
