The Haverford biology major started her full-time job as a genetics researcher for the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine just two days after graduation.
The biology major focused on the interactions between parasitic bacteria and their host for her thesis.
This semester the Biology Department launched its first film series to “spark a conversation about biological themes and how students can get involved in research early during their time at Haverford.”
Students from “Advanced Topics in Biology of Marine Life” give a series of solution-oriented presentations introducing audience members to a variety of case-study analyses on the artificial impact to the world’s marine ecosystems.
This biology course challenges students to confront issues relevant to human impacts on oceans and asks them to engage in a conversation about the best strategies and practices to mitigate these effects based on scientific knowledge.
