Summer Interns Guest Curate BTI Twitter Account: Meet Stephanie Futrell
This week on BTI’s Twitter account, we have a guest curator. Please welcome Stephanie Futrell! She is a member of the 2016 Plant Genome Research Program cohort. This summer we are giving these young scientists an opportunity to communicate their experience through social media. We are looking forward to hearing about their projects in the lab, and their impressions of the internship.
Follow along on @BTIscience and #BTIsummer. Feel free to ask our scientists questions and help share their tweets.
Learn more about this week’s curator:
What are you working on this summer?
I work in the Giovannoni lab with Itay Gonda. I picked this area because I believe the tomato has a huge impact on the human diet and is a key plant in feeding the entire population.
What university are you studying at?
I attend Clemson University as a Genetics major (Go Tigers!).
What is your favorite plant?
My favorite plant is the hibiscus flower.
What is the name of the last book you read?
I am currently reading Outlander by Diana Gabaldon but I enjoy crocheting/knitting, doing puzzles, and going to sporting events.
Do you have a website or Twitter handle you’d like to share?
If you could be any scientist, dead or alive, who would you be?
If I could be any scientist, I would be Charles Darwin.
