Katherine Hatcher

This week we welcome Katherine Hatcher to the show. As a fifth year Neuroscience PhD Candidate at University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, Katherine investigates circadian rhythms and how exposure to environmental factors alters behavior and physiology, particularly in midlife women. Katherine joins us to discuss her path into research, her day-to-day work as a scientist, and how we might apply research in her field to help live our lives better.

We found Katherine (and many other scientists) on #sciencetwitter. Throughout season 13, we will be showcasing some of these scientists and their work.
