Under the Lab Coat

Hi! I’m Mikaela, the person behind this little blog. I’m so glad you’re here. I’m a native Texan and life long science nerd. I love horses, cows, crime shows, and my dog, Ziva. I’m married to my college sweetheart and best friend. As far as formal education, I hold B.S. in Biology with a Chemistry minor. Informally…well, I read a lot. I had wonderful professors in college that taught me how to break down a scientific paper in to digestible pieces.

Over the past several years, I have noticed a disconnect between “Big Science” and the general public. My goal with this site is to make even the most complex concepts more accessible for the average person. Science should be wonderful and exciting, not used to scare people into submission. You may not agree with everything I say, but I hope it at least makes you think about things in a different light.
