So proud of my research students, Alissa and Nikki, for doing their first professional research presentations this week at the annual ICFNJ Research Symposium...
.
I’m also very excited that Nikki was awarded an honorable mention and placed for her presentation. So excited for my students and happy to be able to celebrate all of their hard work!

Wood frogs calling in a pond (may be a vernal pool) in northwestern NJ. 🐸

Wood frog males will call out in hopes of attracting a mate after they thaw out when temperatures begin to stay above freezing. 

Signs of spring are finally arriving!

Can’t think of a better way to celebrate

Can’t think of a better way to celebrate #internationalwomensday2021💜 than to get my first dose of my COVID vaccine... .

Check out some of our

Check out some of our #endospore stains from lab this week! Students stained these using the Schaeffer-Fulton method....essentially this forces the malachite green stain into the endospore (a SUPER durable structure, kind of like a microbial life raft for the cell) using steam from a hot water bath and then counter stains using reddish-pink safranin.... . . #microbiology #microbiologist #microscopy #bacillus #sporestain #biology #handsonlearning #learningbydoing #centscience @cent.science @centenaryuniversity

Bacillus megaterium, visualized using 5% nigrosin negative stain, by one of my microbiology students in lab today!...
.
Several of my students did an excellent job with their stains today and all were able to clearly visualize the structure and form of these bacteria....

Some mixed culture quad streaks of gorgeous deep red Serratia marcescens and pearly white Micrococcus luteus from Microbio lab looking super festive for Valentine’s day...

When grown together in mixed culture, they look like a pretty light pink color that makes for a very festive nutrient agar plate!

Went out for a gorgeous autumn walk to collect some samples for my upcoming “unknown” plant DNA lab in my genetics course @cent.science and stumbled across these cuties. Not sure, but I think these are some type of bonnet mushroom (genus- Mycena)....

Always so many beautiful things to see around this time of year, even when you least expect it!...

Belated post, but happy

Belated post, but happy #WorldMosquitoDay ! While we usually talk about mosquitoes that bite humans, there are also mosquitoes that feed on reptiles, amphibians, marine mammals, and even other invertebrates! ... . . One of the prettiest I’ve seen is Uranotaenia sapphirina- @biodiversilary’s pic, check it out from the great Communications Biology (2018) paper!... . . #mosquito #uranotaeniasapphirina #annelids #vectorbiology #diseaseecology #research #science

For our anniversary, my husband and I got a bird feeder to check out some of the local bird diversity. We’ve seen lots of finches, starlings, grackles, squirrels, and our resident chipmunk. One of my favorites that we’ve seen so far is a scruffy downy woodpecker- check it out!...

Enjoying settling into our new place in

Enjoying settling into our new place in #hackettstownnj and feeling at peace with the beautiful rain coming down outside... . I’ve spent some time exploring town over the last few days and taking a breather before diving into prep for the upcoming semester. While moving is always stressful (esp during a pandemic...), it’s given me time to think about what I want for the coming semester and how to meet the needs of my new students and university. I’ve also been incredibly excited that my sister @its_jess64 received and accepted an offer for a fully funded masters from Wake Forest in business analytics. So stinking proud of her. Moves and change are stressful, but a good time for reflection, excitement, and these rare moments of peace. I think I’m going to like it here... . #rain #rainyday #rest #relaxation #waitforit #takingpause #newdigs #peaceandrain
