78. Conservation Genetics, Cool Plants, and Coffee Pot Ramen w/ Dr. Chris Martine
I'm not sure if you know this, but I think plants are pretty cool. My guest for today's episode, Dr. Chris Martine, thinks Plants Are Cool Too! Chris is a Professor of Plant Genetics and Research, Associate Department Chair of Biology, and Director of the Manning Herbarium at Bucknell University. He's also a science communicator, musician, past (and present?) actor, and the host and creator of the fantastic Plants Are Cool Too YouTube channel! Chris and I talked about his past and experience, the ins and outs of being faculty at different kinds of universities, research, education, mentoring, conservation, and so many other things! Chris is an empathetic and enthusiastic educator and his students are lucky to have him!
