About Rosalyn

When I was in high school, I was lucky enough to encounter several teachers who helped demystify previously daunting scientific concepts and instill a strong passion for biology in me. Without those teachers, I might have come away thinking that science and math were boring, or even frightening, but instead I was introduced to a fascinating and compelling branch of study. I continued studying biology in college, and eventually settled on evolutionary biology. In particular, I studied bat flight from an evolutionary perspective using a specialized branch of evolutionary statistics called phylogenetics, and plan to continue my research in graduate school. I continue to be challenged and inspired by biology and statistics and remain forever grateful to those early teachers who helped me understand biology beyond the dry language of textbooks, which is why I'm passionate about science communication.

As an undergraduate, I worked as a teaching assistant for biology courses, where I ran lab sessions and exam reviews. I volunteered as a mentor for an environmental education program at a High School in Providence, where I organized and led science workshops with themes ranging from climate change to environmental justice, and I organized and led several camping and backpacking trips for students each semester. During my senior year, I was a mentor for the National College Advising Corps, a branch of AmeriCorps, working to increase college access for students at low-income high schools in Rhode Island. I worked one-on-one with students and helped with SAT and ACT tutoring, essay writing, and many other aspects of the college application process, from filling out the FAFSA to visiting colleges and selecting classes. I graduated in May 2014 and worked for the US Forest Service in California before moving to Telluride in January 2015.
