"…it's something bigger than me. It's life and death and everything in between. Science is the reason and cause and effect. It's the questions we can and can't answer. It's fulfilling yet it never fails to leave you with more questions. Science has been my main interest since I was young - from catching bugs and frogs as a kid to identify my neighborhood wildlife, to memorizing the constellations and moon phases, to studying Parkinson's disease, and now studying traumatic brain injury. I became a scientist, but I was also born one."
