Abbey RobinsonAbbey is a MCDB&G Ph.D. student in Assistant Professor Kate Adamala's lab. She works on engineering and constructing communication systems for synthetic minimal cells. Abbey garnered an interest in science communication as an undergrad when she gave her first poster presentation and came to the stark realization that if she continued in science, she'd have to explain things. As someone who once hated English class, writing has become one of Abbey's favorite things about science and she hopes to help other students find a passion for writing as well.
