About Clair!

Clair grew up in northern Virginia and received an undergraduate degree in Biology and Chemistry from the University of North Carolina Asheville. Moving from one mountain range to the next, she began working on her graduate degree at the University of Colorado Boulder the Fall of 2020. She is currently working on a PhD in Biochemistry in Dr. Jeffrey Cameron’s lab using timelapse fluorescence microscopy to track the redox state inside the carboxysome, a microcompartment found in cyanobacteria (commonly known as blue-green algae) that allows for cyanobacteria to convert atmospheric CO2 into sugars for life.

With a love for all things green, Clair spends her weekends backpacking, tending her jungle of houseplants (complete with her “jungle-cat” Kiki), or fly fishing. She works as a freelance artist, primarily creating digitally painted landscapes or graphic design work for board games. Clair plans to pursue a career focused on addressing climate change through applied research and scientific outreach.
