As the product of an interdisciplinary graduate program, I cannot overemphasize the value of opportunities like Binghamton University’s New Humanities Initiative.
Years after receiving my degree, I continue to inhabit the space between the sciences and humanities as a scientist at Duke working on environmental policy and as a science writer.
Experience has taught me neither field can be addressed comprehensively through a single lens, and we make the greatest strides and forge new directions through the convergence of people and philosophies.

Amen to that….here’s to more combinatorial, interdisciplinary personalities like Sheril–we sorely need them.
