I am a bioengineering instructor at the University of Illinois-Urbana. I am also involved in practically nauseating amounts of science outreach at every level. My personal website Lovely Scientist Loves Science includes videos from my YouTube channel, and also some items from my modeling days way back when… when I had luxuriant flowing hair, but was NOT a scientist — yet! I was called to audition recently for a Dove ‘Real Women’ commercial for their shampoo, but was disqualified b/c I have to pull it back into a ponytail for lab work. Sigh. What’s one to do?
