My name’s Irene, and I’m a biology PhD student at CUNY currently researching viral evolution and ecology. I got my B.S. at University of Maryland where I majored in biology with a minor in geology, and got to study sexual selection in bowerbirds. My paintings up are usually of organisms I’m interested in, and my posts are my attempts at sharing things I found particularly amazing and underappreciated when studying evolution.

I currently live in Manhattan with my two cats, Minnie and O’Malley, who are both currently researching NYC dove and squirrel behavior using a sophisticated two-way mirror window bird feeder.
