About Me

My name is Aly and I am currently a PhD candidate in the Department of Geosciences at Baylor University studying the relationship between leaf shape and climate in Africa, and trying to apply that relationship to fossils. I earned an MS in Biology from East Tennessee State University in 2014 and in 2012 I graduated from the University of Michigan with a Bachelor’s of Science (majored in Program in the Environment and minored in Biological Anthropology). I am a Michigander, born and raised, but I have been to 48 of the 50 states, as well as Canada, the Bahamas, Italy, Switzerland, France, England, Ireland, Brazil, and Kenya. One of my life goals is to visit every National Park in the United States. I have a soft spot for museums and visit them whenever I can.

Science, particularly natural or physical sciences, are very important to me and I want to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When I hear a scientific term, I immediately break it down in my head. To many, science can seem like a foreign language. That’s where I come in. Scientia is Latin for knowledge and Veritas is Latin for  truth. That’s my goal: to share knowledge and truth.
