Hello, my name is Sarah and I am a frog biologist! I studied the role of stress hormones in frog mating systems. The name "Cresyl" actually comes from some of my work in neuroscience. "Cresyl" violet is a dye that is used to stain neurons in the brain and I used it to compare the size of neurons between different species of frogs.
In addition to being an academic, I am a huge gamer nerd. Gaming really helped me make it through graduate school without going completely insane. I play primarily MMORPGs, such as the Elder Scrolls Online, but I also enjoy solo-player RPGs like Bioshock and Skyrim. I can sometimes be a little obsessive over Pokemon games and the Sims 4.
I enjoy singing and hosting science web shows to boot! Hope to see you soon!
