I’m a biologist who started off wanting to be an astronomer as a young girl. I changed my mind about 5th grade to wanting to be a physician (then a researcher, then an educator), yet never lost the sense of wonder for the realms of space and our ingenuity that allows us to travel to it.

This page collects posts that I have created about space travel and exploration.
