Dr. Kelly Weinersmith
I’m a parasitologist, podcaster, mom, and sci writer (not necessarily in that order). I study parasites that manipulate the behavior of their hosts, making the host behave in ways that benefit the parasite. My favorite parasite is the crypt-keeper wasp, which you can read more about here. I am an adjunct assistant professor at Rice University in the BioSciences Department. You can find out more about my research here.
What is a Zach Weinersmith?
In his spare time, OH GOD I NEED SOME SPARE TIME.
The Weinersmith Theme was lovingly crafted by the awesome Dr. Paul Smaldino, who like Buckaroo Banzai is both a rock star and a scientist.
