Biography

I’m Abby. I graduated a while ago as part of the Class of 2020, and I haven't been back to Cambridge since the pandemic forced us to abandon campus in March 2020. At MIT I was a programming co-director and a late-night DJ with WMBR, a front desk worker and desk captain at MacGregor House, a blogger and blogger captain (here), and a novice cell biologist in Building 68.

I come from kudzu-covered Birmingham, AL, but I live in historically-Redwooded Oakland, CA now. Having conquered the Gulf and East Coasts, I am taking a stab at Pacific life as a graduate student (now PhD candidate!) at UC Berkeley in Molecular and Cell Biology where I study oxidative cell death. I live in a tiny studio apartment with my cat Saganaki and our collection of snail-ravaged plants.

Thanks for being my audience! (The old askabby [at] mit [dot] edu email address still works, by the way.)
