Name About me and my work Zone name Date
Avani Wildani I program computer models of how the brain works Hydrogen Zone May 2015
Zoe GetmanPickering I study predatory insects, and the fear they cause. I also study how plants talk to each other through huge underground fungus networks. Hydrogen Zone May 2015
K. Lindsay Hunter As a biological anthropologist, I study human bones and fossils to learn more about our past. I also look for new ways to keep monkeys and farmers from hurting one another. It’s like a cross between “Bones” and Jane Goodall! Hydrogen Zone May 2015
Kenzi Clark I help keep General Mills food products free from harmful bacteria, so they are safe for you to eat! Hydrogen Zone May 2015
Jeff Shi I study the world’s bats, and how evolution has molded them into a group of superhero-like animals as spectacularly diverse as Batman’s gadgets. Hydrogen Zone May 2015

Keegan Cooke I create electricity from mud, using bacteria! (and you can too!) Soil Zone April 2016
Clay Robinson I am a soil scientist who is passionate about learning and about teaching others about the importance of soil, the foundation of all terrestrial ecosystems! Soil Zone April 2016
Ana Páez Garcia I study how the plants build their root system to explore the soil and reach all the water and nutrients they need. Soil Zone April 2016
Alexander Taylor I study how certain plants evolved the ability to recognize and partner with bacteria in the soil. Soil Zone April 2016
Kevin Baker I study how your blood works to form clots (which eventually form scabs) when you get hurt (like falling off a bike). Helium Zone April 2016
Stephanie Moon I study how mosquito-borne viruses and genetic conditions change the way human cells function in response to stress Helium Zone April 2016
Melissa Wilson Sayres I use computers to understand sex chromosome evolution in humans and other species. Helium Zone April 2016
Kellie Jaremko I study pain and addiction in patients before/after they have surgery. Helium Zone April 2016
Jonathan Jackson I study the brains of old people as they think really hard and try to remember stuff. Helium Zone April 2016
Mark Ritchie I discover new ways that animals, plants, and soil microorganisms affect each other and how this knowledge can help transform how people live. Soil Zone April 2016
Xueyuan Jiang I study how genes acquire new function after they copied themselves millions years ago Genomics Zone March 2017
Sahra Uygun I use biological data, information from >20,000 genes and try to make sense about gene regulation and function in the model plant Genomics Zone March 2017
Matthew Bainbridge I look at genetic data in sick kids and and try to figure out what’s going on. Genomics Zone March 2017
Jennifer Hintzsche I write computer software to try and cure cancer! Genomics Zone March 2017
Candace Lewis I scan brains, manipulate genes, and measure behavior all to figure out how it is that we are who we are! Genomics Zone March 2017
