Beatrice is a PhD student in History of Science and a Master’s student in Cassandra Extavour’s lab in the department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology. Her work focuses on the history of cell and developmental biology, specifically experimental and visualization practices in 20th century embryology. She is more broadly interested in the relationship between making and knowing within these fields. Through her media practice, she explores ways of capturing scientists’ experiences as well as how image-making methods, aesthetics, and spaces of encounter influence perception of biological data. Beatrice’s work is supported by a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship.
