“My research has to do with looking for life on other planets”

“I blame it on reading a lot of science fiction growing up. I really liked astronomy, I really liked biology and then I discovered there is thing thing called astrobiology which combines both of them and it involved looking for aliens – and I’m like “oh my god, this is what I want to do with my life. And here I am.”

“Within the Tempe campus, it hasn’t felt like much of an issue. Again, here people seem pretty nonchalant about it. Like, I’m wearing a shirt that says “Space Queer” and the only thing I ever hear are people complimenting me, if they notice it at all.”
