Im a graduate student in the Program for Genetics & Genomics at Duke University. I love forests. Im trying to learn how they function on a molecular level, and how to make all plants happier by better understanding their interactions with their microbial partners.

Thoughts on publishing

“Keep in mind that nothing is perfect. Have you ever read a paper in reading group that you had nothing critical to say about? Your paper will not be without flaws, you will make mistakes, but you still need to publish and your paper will represent the incremental progress that science is built upon. Done is better than perfect.”

-Dr. Kabir Peay

Coach K on passion & setbacks

“When you are passionate, you always have your destination in sight and you are not distracted by obstacles. Because you love what you are pursuing, things like rejection and setbacks will not hinder you in your pursuit.”

-Coach K

“We just get on…

“We just get on with what’s the next most important thing, which is our definition, by the way, for mental toughness.”

-Jack Clark
