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

  • Research Interests (300 words)
    I study Queen Anne's lace, or wild carrot, genetics. I use this species to study mitochondrial dynamics within the plant and from generation to generation

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

  • Answer the question you selected for profile question 1 here (300 words):
    Science is great in that you can ask questions and then design ways to answer those questions. The best part of being a scientist is when a series of questions is answered and you get to tell a cool story about what you learned.

  • Profile Question 2
    When and why did you decide to go into a science career?

  • Answer the question you selected for profile question 2 here (300 words):
    I began school as a nursing student, but when I took Human Anatomy and Physiology I realized that I loved biology, rather than taking care of people. By becoming a scientist, I continue to learn cool things.

  • Profile Question 3
    Can you describe your attitude toward science when you were in high school?

  • Answer the question you selected for profile question 3 here (300 words):
    I loved science in high school. I took Biology II as a senior elective because I loved it so much. That class was cool because half of it was Zoology and half was Botany. I learned some really great things in that class, and my teacher was pretty amazing too!

  • Availability
    I am NOT available, please temporarily remove me from the available mentor list

Hi group! Your results were fairly straightforward. Your reasoning as to why salt might negatively impact photosynthesis is very nice. Photosynthesis did occur, but at a slower rate. Very nice job.

Hi Water Lilies -

It looks like your experiment went well! I'm happy to see that you received some nice results.

Hi Group!

Those sound like interesting investigations. I like your question about how salinity affects the rate of photosynthesis. You say you think that higher salinity will be detrimental - how so? That goes back to how/why your leaf disks…
