What is the nerdiest thing you do in your spare time? 
Follow #AcademicTwitter to read the stories of fellow grad students and academics, indulge in the solidarity-building memes, and learn how I can be an advocate for this community/industry that struggles with gender equality and mental health. Also, I knit baby hats!

What is your favorite cereal?
Honey oat granola and Captain Crunch

What’s the strangest talent you have?
Hm. I give really great hugs!

At which store would you like to max-out your credit card?
As a new homeowner, probably Home Depot.

Have you ever met anyone famous?
Kiley and I met Darren Criss during a friend's crawdad boil in NOLA once!

What are you reading right now?
I've been slowly working my way through The Alienist but just purchased Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America to start ASAP.

If you could pick up a new skill in an instant what would it be?
Plant identification! Or carpentry.

What’s your favorite place you’ve ever visited?
This one is a toughie, but I really loved Northern Ireland. My wife and I spent one night in Belfast after visiting Giant's Causeway and the short-but-sweet experience really stuck with us.
