Yaamini Venkataraman is a current graduate student at the University of Washington's School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences. She studies how climate change will affect shellfish in current and future oceans using "-omic" techniques. As a Social Media Intern, she gets to spend a lot of time ghostwriting sassy social media posts for the NOAA Office of National Marine Sanctuaries. She also writes in-depth features about graduate students in the Dr. Nancy Foster Scholarship Program. When she's not raising oysters, doing labwork or yelling at her computer, you can find Yaamini somewhere in the mountains or in one of Seattle's many restaurants and breweries.
