Asst. Director, Science in Society
Rebecca Daugherty

Rebecca began working with Science Club during the Spring of 2008 as a Northwestern University graduate student volunteer. After graduating with her PhD in Cell Biology from the Integrated Graduate Program in Life Sciences (now called the Driskill Graduate Program in Life Sciences) in 2010, Rebecca pursued a postdoctoral position in science education and public engagement with Science in Society. Based on her oustanding work, she was appointed to the position of SiS Assistant Director in June 2012. Rebecca currently oversees several SiS programs: the Evanston Township High School Biology Program, Junior Science Club, and Eco-Stars. She also plays important roles in the Science Club initiative and serves as the Interim Editor of HELIX Magazine. When Rebecca is not having science-y fun, she is running around with her two boys or digging in her garden.
