Beatrice Steinert is a graduate student in History and Philosophy of Science at Harvard University, and a McDonnell Fellow at the Özpolat Lab at the MBL. Beatrice is interested in how we see the world of microscopic living things. Her approach to exploring this world is multifold: through lab-based research, the history of science and science studies, and visual art. Her main interests are in cell and developmental biology and visualization practices and technologies such as microscopy, printmaking, drawing, 3D modeling and printing, and virtual reality. http://www.beatricesteinert.com/
