Sheril, Role Model

By Chris Mooney | July 28, 2009 9:03 am

Once again, I will embarrass my coauthor/coblogger: In a really amazing post here, David Wescott provides a list of “female role models,” and guess who appears?

Of course this is no surprise to me, or to Intersection readers. Sheril is only at the beginning of a career in which she will serve as a positive example for many, but especially young girls interested in science, and young scientists who want to leave the beaten path and try something very different–reaching the public.

Again, go here to find Sheril “singled out” in the best possible way.
