Tune in weekly to our virtual series “Seventeen Minutes of Science” every Tuesday at 11am PST / 2pm ET where we go live on Facebook with a new guest each week to talk about how science and biotechnology is woven into their lives for (you guessed it) 17 minutes!
This week on 17 Minutes of Science: From zebrafish to electric fish – the evolution of a PhD student’s research with Kassandra Ford.
Kasandra Ford is a University of Louisiana Lafayette BOR-SREB Doctoral Fellow and biologist. Her undergrad work focused on the neurobiology and development of zebrafish, and now her PhD research work is focused on studying the convergent evolution of electric fishes from South America and Africa.
Join us as we discuss with Kassandra how her undergrad work in zebrafish helped inspire her to have a career in science, the work she is doing in electric fish for her PhD research, and about representation in science and how that has impacted and inspired Kassandra.
