Alumna Katharine Dickson chats about her published research and what led to her PhD pursuit at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
Mason Degree: BS, Biology 2014
Career Goals: Ideally, I’d like to be a professor, though in the current job market I am also considering spending time in biotech (maybe even starting my own biotech company), investigating patent law and science policy, and consulting as a biology expert.
Favorite Mason Memory: Besides graduation, with “Happy” by Pharrell Williams as the soundtrack? Probably [participating in Mason’s] Biology Research Semester.
Professionally, I’m most proud of…my research publication. Also, right now I’m working on a National Science Foundation graduate fellowship application with a prospective advisor. It looks to be evolving into my dissertation topic.
