Other Stuff I do

Metal Chick hasn’t written many blog posts, mostly because she’s in grad school and is still trying to submit the MS from her Master’s. As such,  Twitter is the best place to follow her: @ScienceIsMetal

Sometimes, she uses her precious free writing time to write for other epic online sources:

Lots of other websites have picked up the piece now, too! I was super stoked to help spread the word about this new treatment.

She’s also the Communications Chair of the Mycological Society of America’s Student Section. Even if you’re not a student, you can follow cool news about mushrooms and fungi on Twitter: @MSAStudents and on Facebook.

Metal Chick was ALSO on the executive board of the Harvard Graduate Women in Science & Engineering organization (HGWISE), and is slowly but surely leading an effort to raise awareness about unconscious bias, or implicit bias. More to come on that as I round up a new team at Berkeley! 😀

You can take tests to learn more about your own unconscious biases here.

    Thanks for the Amanita phaloides article. Wanted to draw your attention to its description, distribution, occurrence etc in South Africa as it appears in ‘Mushrooms of Southern Africa’, van der Westhuizen GCA and Eicker Albert; Struik, Cape Town 1994; ISBN 1-86825-507-7.
    It has a wide distribution in here, where it forms mycorrhizae with oaks, pines and poplars. Would be happy to send you a scan of the relevant page of the book, which is now out of print.

    Hey Larry,
    Glad you liked the article! I’d be very curious to read about phalloides in South Africa. You can send me scans via my Harvard account, catharineadams at fas.harvard.edu

    Thanks so much!!
