hello from the end of 2022, a big year of transitions and transformations. here are some highlights from the year:
- We published our manuscript on octopus steroid hormones. I am thankful to our fantastic collaborators in the Cologna Lab for their devotion to this work and for making this project so fun!    
- We published our manuscript on bumblebee social isolation. A great way to wrap up my time in Princeton.    
- I completed the Grass Fellowship at the MBL. 
- I’ve been very lucky this year to share our research and my journey in science with so many folks. Here are some of those conversations:
- NYT: The search for a model octopus that won’t die after laying its eggs.
- Stories of WiN: Profile by Megan Kirchgessner (thank you Megan!)
- Science Friday: Cephalopod week
- National Geographic Magazine: See why octopuses may be the ultimate sacrificing moms
- NYT Kids Games Issue: Octopus maze
and finally, most excitingly, most importantly–the lab officially opened! A big welcome to our first members, Stephanie, Angelyiah, Michael, and Sal. Thank you all for making this journey bright, I am so looking forward to learning and growing with you all.
