Grace Vezeau is a Ph.D. candidate by day, and sometimes night, with the Salis Lab at Penn State University. Her interest in programming biological systems to perform new, useful tasks was sparked when she began studying the production of biorenewables from algae in her undergraduate research at Cornell University. She currently studies the biophysics of nucleic acid interactions in order to be able to build better biosensing systems for chemicals and proteins. When she’s not in the lab, she enjoys trying (often succeeding!) to cook new recipes, exercising, and encouraging her recalcitrant avocado tree to grow.
