Poster Central

All of the posts I will be sharing with you will be on one of my favorite parts of the BPS meeting – the poster session. At no other meeting that I have been to has the poster session been so well attended and worthwhile. Way to go BPS!

This year I have just started an Assistant Professorship at Amherst College in western Massachusetts. Amherst is a small, private, liberal arts college with some amazing undergraduate students. I have several in my lab working on a range of projects from building an optical trap to detecting micron-sized beads using laser detection. It is great to have my students present posters at BPS to show off all they have accomplished.

I would also like to use the poster session as a place to talk to other scientists that are not in my field, but in fields that I would like to learn about – AFM, microrheology, and patch clamp. Hopefully this blog will help. 🙂

About me: I was an undergraduate at Univ. of Michigan – Ann Arbor and completed a BS in physics and a BE in engineering physics. I went to graduate school at the Univ. of Colorado – Boulder and did my PhD work in optical trapping with Tom Perkins. I did a post doc at Harvard with Aravi Samuel in behavioral neuroscience before taking an Assistant Professorship at Amherst College.

  1. That’s great to hear that your poster session had such a great turn out! These can be so informative.
    Congratulations to you on all your hard work and on your Assistant Professorship.

    I can’t wait to read more of your blog.
