Monica is a professional science writer. Her love of science likely arose from an obsession with reading Animorphs and catching rolly-pollies and anoles as a kid. She writes about research as a day job, but is interested in exploring the other forces that guide how science is done, how it is applied and who benefits. Genetics is one of her favorite fields, and the reason why her dog has no hair (Chinese crested: Hh).
