Today, one in five of all maternal deaths are caused by malnutrition - and no mother should die giving life. Send a message to your Members of Congress and ask them to show greater support for global nutrition programs in this year's budget

Confirmation bias and scientific literacy in the internet age. My take for the American Chemical Society #scicomm  
The following multipart blog series was inspired by a conversation among a few friends about scientific communication, the current state of education in

What to do when your company announces a restructuring. My take for the American Chemical Society's Industry Voices.
I read the news today, oh, boy! What happens when you hear on the morning news that your company is restructuring and there will be layoffs involved?

My latest for the American Chemical Society's Industry Voices blog - the frustrations of being called a shill and science in an atmosphere of mistrust. #scicomm

Let’s help African business owners create more jobs, hospitals keep patients safe, and kids study once the sun goes down. Tell your member of Congress to cosponsor the Electrify Africa Act and help millions of African citizens get access to electricity for the first time.

#TimHunt  is a symptom of a broader gender bias problem in science. My take at the American Chemical Society Industry Voices blog.
Today my social media feeds are exploding due to the idiotic comments made by Nobel laureate Tim Hunt about his problem with girls in the lab: “Let me

Half of child deaths under age 5 can be prevented if we improve global nutrition. ADD YOUR NAME to tell Congress that this MUST happen.

Tell Congress that strong investments in development and humanitarian assistance today will continue to protect the world’s most vulnerable people and help prevent humanitarian crises tomorrow.

The Electrify Africa Act passed the Senate. Now it's time for the House to do the same. Send your member of Congress a message and urge them to pass the bill NOW.

Mandela’s words represent what it means to be a ONE member and at the birth of the ambitious Global Goals, we will not rest until they are achieved. Will you stand as ONE?

We can get this done this time!
Ask your representatives to vote yes for the Electrify Africa Act and help bring energy to 50 million people in sub-Saharan Africa for the first time - at no cost to US taxpayers.

Introduction
Research Scientist at Monsanto with a passion in sustainable agriculture and helping small stakeholder farmers in the developing world. All opinions expressed or implied are my own and do not represent the position of Monsanto.

Over 20 years bench experience studying protein structure, folding, and design. Early work was on determinants of protein secondary structure from a computational approach. The bulk of my lab work has focused on the structure and function of bacterial protein toxins, mainly on the endotoxins produced by Bacillus thuringiensis and their insecticidal activities. Related to that work I have an interest in the biophysics of membranes and how they interact with proteins.

During my research time at the bench, I have become a recognized leader in building science-based platforms as well as a leading developer of people. I successfully built a protein design group and then wholly integrated a broad protein science platform of 35+ people. I then moved outside of my area of technical expertise and built a cell biology platform of 35+ people working in all areas of plant cell biology, RNA biology, and genome modification biology. My current task is integrating a platform of 40+ scientists in the areas of cell biology and analytical chemistry.

Outside of direct technical scientific work, I am deeply passionate about the role of agriculture in helping to eliminate extreme poverty and in building a sustainable world for small stakeholder farmers in Africa. Providing the broad set of modern agricultural tools to poor farmers will provide them with the means to not only feed their families, but to also participate in the broader economy to raise themselves out of poverty. Where you live should not determine whether you live and I am pleased to work with the ONE Campaign to help bring about this change for Sub-Saharan Africa.
