My name is Allison Lee and I am the author and creator of WOMAN SCIENTIST.
- I was born and raised in Seattle, Washington. I have traveled to 31 countries and all 7 continents. I yearn to learn everything. I speak English, French, & Spanish and I geek out on science topics daily. I have way too much energy which is redirected to running, cycling, hiking, traveling, learning, socializing, coffee-drinking, playing music, and painting. Some may perceive me to be burning the candle at both ends but what they don’t realize is that I am just a hummingbird moving at warp speed which relative to a hummingbird feels like “normal” speed. I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology at the University of Washington in 2006, and after a 10 year gap working in the ‘real world’ I’ve decided to go back to school. Beginning June 2016, I will be pursuing a Master’s Degree in Marine Biodiversity and Conservation at Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
- Disclaimer: If you aren’t sure what you want to study in your career, I highly recommend taking time off before going to graduate school to explore. I spent 10 years working as a research technician on various projects and do not regret for a moment all the experiences I’ve gained which I now bring to my life as a graduate student. You have time and its never too late.
I created a silly little intro video of myself in an attempt to illustrate that a woman scientist does not have to be the stereotypical white haired old person.
I am also a FabFems Role Model.
