krillin’ it

The path we take to adulthood is full of twists and turns and bad haircuts…not unlike these krill. Learn more about the krill life cycle in today’s comic: krillin’ it

Today’s comic was a really special one for me to make.  It’s in honor of my good friend, fellow grad student and mentor Anna McLaskey who is DEFENDING HER PHD TODAY! Anna studies how krill and other zooplankton are affected by changing ocean conditions. I am so proud of all she has accomplished and am excited to follow her journey as a scientist. In short, she’s krillin’ it.
