JUST ANOTHER SCIENTISTS WEBPAGE
Hi, my name is Alexis Walker and I am a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Alaska Fairbanks and I have almost no web-presence. This is due, in part, because I'm uncomfortable with self-promotion. Another major reason can be summed up by "you are where you live". Trust me, if you ever plan to visit Fairbanks, you'll quickly discover that most of the businesses, events, and research labs here don't have an online presence whatsoever. So why now? Well, I received some feedback from a grant proposal, in which I was indicated as a graduate student contractor (CV not included), that basically said "who is this person and how do we know she can do what she says she can, she doesn't even have a web-presence". Fair point human, so here I am, realizing that I too can be just another scientist with a webpage. I'm still figuring out how I want this website to look and what content I want to include, so please keep that in mind while browsing. I hope to at least provide a general idea of who I am and what I work on (Arctic marine sediment microbes), and include interesting tidbits from my research, as well as a forum to discuss research and papers which I will hopefully publish in the near future. Thanks for stopping by.
