I'm Nora Pyenson.
Who is she...
I am a scientist who ~loves~ microbes. I am currently a post-doctoral researcher and a Simons Foundation Awardee of the LSRF fellowship. I study microbial communities a.k.a. microbiomes in the Turner lab at Yale University and the Foster lab at Oxford University. Before that I got my PhD studying CRISPR in the Marraffini lab at Rockefeller University. My devotion to single-celled organisms was first cemented during my time as a research technician in Jim Collins' lab. In my spare time I like to create animated science videos, sew colorful clothing, and kayak along Mill River.
