Leia Dwyer has been an ASBMB Today contributor since 2020, and she appreciates getting to speak with different scientists about their work and share that with a broader audience. She received her Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where she had the opportunity to work with the Communication Lab, a new venture to develop skills and enthusiasm for science and engineering communication. Despite exciting opportunities for short-term work stints in Washington, D.C., Chicago, London, and San Francisco, she is a New England native, and loves her Boston biotech home base. Outside of work, she is usually climbing a mountain or biking along the coast.
