My lab welcomes students, postdocs and visiting scholars regardless of race, religion, gender identification, sexual orientation, age, or disability status. The more reflective of society’s diversity the lab is, the better we are. It is through diverse perspectives and abilities that we see all possible answers to a problem. It is through such diversity that we create an environment like that which we hope for in society more generally. If our lab does not reflect the diversity of society we have failed, and that failure is far greater than the failure to discover a species, get a grant or write a paper.
