About Me


I am an Assistant Professor at Arizona State University in the School of Earth and Space Exploration and the Beyond Center for Fundamental Concepts in Science.  

I am fascinated by all questions regarding the nature of life in the universe: How did life begin? How common is life? Are there universal laws of biological systems, as true here on Earth as they might be for extraterrestrial life should we ever find it? Its pretty exciting science, in part because there are currently more questions than answers!

Awesomeness!  It would be great to reach out to the wider astrobio community that way.

Hey Sara!  I'm curious to know if you're the organizer for the ASU astrobiology activities on SAGANet.  I'm considering trying to implement something similar for our Astrobiology Journal Club as well as a planned astrobiology lecture series here at CU in Boulder, so I'm looking for any advice on how to get that set up.  Thanks for any help you can offer!

I spoke with Hannah and with our schedules emailing looks like it will be the best way for us to communicate with only a few days till our lesson! We will email you today (I see her soon, in class!) Thanks!

Hello Sara! Wanting to see if you have any ideas for our discovery room lesson. Myself and Hannah are thinking about doing an activity with static electricity!

Thanks for opportunity, I enjoyed the discussion despite the technical problems we experienced.

Don't worry, when it comes to interdisciplinarity nobody knows where they are standing :)

Thank you for the encouragement, Sara!  I am hoping to set this up.  My class turned in their mission summaries today -- I'm looking forward to seeing the type of exploration they recommend.  Hope all's well as you catch up on everything post-AbSciCon!

It was good to see you too! My dog, as far as I've been able to figure out, is a Carolina Dog/American Dingo Dog.
