Freya participated in the annual national Scientista Symposium in Boston, MA on 29-31st March 2019. With the support of a Scientista travel grant, she presented a poster “It’s a Small World: Studying Host-microbe Interaction in Xylem-Feeding Insects using Microscopy and 16S Amplicon Sequencing”. Freya enjoys being a part of the Scientista community and appreciates the support the Scientista Foundation gives to pre-professional women in STEM. Freya especially enjoyed talks given by the Born Seeker Fellowship finalists at the symposium.
Freya has been working with us as an undergraduate research assistant over the last two years, with support from NSF. We are delighted that she has taken this opportunity to present the research that she is doing with us.
