Guest Post on the EEB and flow

I have a guest post on the rather awesome EEB and flow discussing my experiences as a minority in ecology. Check it out and let me know what you think. Also relevant is this piece in Science Careers on the difficulties minority women scientists face in europe.

P.S. I owe you one, Caroline


  1. Great post Sarah.

    Its true even in math:
    pr(ecologist | north american) \approx 0

  2. Thanks for the support.

    Your conditional probability statement made my day!
