Tess has a curiosity for the tiny things that make up life that are too small for us to see. She got her PhD in microbiology developing novel antimicrobials and studied the molecular assembly line that allows cells to function in her postdoctoral studies. She recently changed careers from bench scientist to the Education and Broadening Participation Manager for the STROBE Program at CU Boulder.
Tess SciComm’s because she wants to share amazing STEM achievements to the public and show that scientists are real people who are overcoming obstacles to understand the world around them. Tess is also a musician, loves a great hike with her husband and Aussies, and is a solid Gryffindor. Visit Tess’s website at tessthescientist.com.
