Amanda Zahorik

I'm a Ph.D. student in molecular biology and microbiology. I'm also a writer by avocation and hopeful future vocation: the best career advice I ever got was to do what I couldn't help but do, and I can't help but write!

Here at Hubpages, I write about a broad gamut of subjects. While my pet subject is microbiology and science communication, my interests also include exercise (powerlifting and yoga), food (and drink!), and the joys of getting my fingers in the dirt through gardening and the ocean wind in my face through sailing. As an erstwhile resident of Italy, I might also share some recipes and travel tips for folks looking to visit my home away from home.
