Why did you choose science as a career?
Chemistry and math came easily to me in high school, and my guidance counselor told me engineering would be a good field for women (lots of jobs!), so I decided to focus on engineering in college.
Why are you passionate about what you're working on?
I believe SmartPhage's approach to treating acne and other derm conditions is truly a break-through that will change the lives of people who are suffering from acne and other skin problems.
What is one piece of advice you’d give to young women in the life science sector?
Focus on being a good scientist/engineer, not on being a woman scientist/engineer. The rest will take care of itself.
