I am a graduate student studying reproductive evolution. My research focuses on the evolution and function of female contributions to the reproductive environment. I am also a sci fi fan, artist/doodler, feminist, cider aficionado, rugby player, and contra dancer.
This blog is an opportunity for me to play with a new writing style, express developing ideas, and engage with a broader scientific and public community. I will, generally, be writing critiques and/or comments on primary literature and feminist science (usually related to reproduction and sexual selection), reflections on personal experiences both in academia and outside, and quick pieces on the connections I see between real science and my favorite scifi novels.
As this is new to me (and rather exciting) I welcome any and all comments, suggestions and feedback. More information about me can be found at my website: cemcdonough.com – Caitlin McDonough
