American Museum of Natural History Evolution of Terrestrial Leeches

A biology and studio art double major, Rebecca Rood Goldman ’14, spent the summer studying the evolution of terrestrial leeches at the Richard Gilder Graduate School at the American Museum of Natural History in New York for her LEEP Liberal Arts and Effective Practice) Project. She is incorporating her research with her interest in art. Throughout the next couple of years, Rebecca will put together a visual display of photographs that exhibit the beauty of biology in a way that appeals to both biologists and non-scientists. Rebecca’s faculty advisor is Biology Professor Susan Foster. Read Rebecca’s blog.
