Hello, my name is Emily Reast. I’m in my fourth year of my undergraduate studies and hope to achieve a degree in biological sciences. I’m an avid lover of the outdoors, and I value maintaining a healthy lifestyle, in all aspects that contribute to being happy and healthy. I work as a lab assistant in the Bret-Harte lab over in Arctic Health which works with plants, so I haven’t got much experience in the field of microbiology at all. I’ve been really excited to take this class for a few years now, so I’m happy to be here. I think microorganisms and their worlds are fascinating and amazing. I’m always intrigued at the detail one can see though a microscope that are otherwise invisible to us.
