What is your current role? Tell us a bit about your research
I am a PhD student in Cell and Molecular Biology at Duke University. I research macrophage recruitment and function after injury and disease in lung alveoli, focusing on the interaction between cell populations and stem cells within the tissue during regeneration.
Why did you choose to participate in the ASAPbio Fellows program?
I am excited to participate in the ASAPbio Fellows program to learn about the impact of preprints and transparency in science, and to have conversations with peers about how to promote it within the scientific community.
What are you excited about in science communication?
Science communication is very complex and important within academia and with the public. This communication is essential for scientific outreach and to bring together the scientific community. There is a lot of work that can be done to diversify and strengthen scientific communication and I am excited to be able to contribute to this!
