Rosalind

You can call me Rosalind.

I am a wife, a microbiologist, a Jersey girl, and a trekkie.

I live in Western Massachusetts, but grew up in Bruce Springsteen’s hometown of Freehold, NJ. I’ve been a scientist since I was little and created habitats for caterpillars in buckets. Mom never let me keep them inside the house, though. I’ve been watching Star Trek as long as I can remember, and I have a little, tiny (read that as GIGANTIC) crush on Wil Wheaton (Love you Wil!). I adore good science fiction and horror and have read and watched numerous examples of both including the Robots and Foundation series from Issac Asimov, X-files, Many Star Treks, Stargate, Battlestar Galactica, the Vampire Chronicles, and Supernatural, to name just a few. I can sing the entire score to three or four musicals, my favorite being RENT (RIP Jonathon Larson).

Currently, I work as a microbial ecologist and occasional biogeochemist studying various anthropogenic (read that as human) inputs that affect natural microbial communities and trying to use the microbes to improve these natural systems.

    Hey, cool! More biology/ecology geeks like me. The world needs more. I have to say, though, that I don’t have a lab and my lab technique is a little rusty, so I experiment with macrobiology, like plants and fungus. Cool site, by the way.
