Irene is currently a sixth-year human genetics Ph.D. student at the University of Michigan. While she enjoys benchwork, she enjoys telling people about science more. She was a news reporter at The Michigan Daily for almost three years (and was the only graduate student on the news staff). She also helped to establish Michigan Science Writers, a student organization that trains students and postdocs to write about science for the general public.
She sits down with us to discuss why she considered leaving her Ph.D. program and what made her decide to stay.
