Hi! My name is Mandy (officially Amanda Rasmussen but friends call me Mandy). I have built this webpage mostly to help students and teachers understand what the life of a scientist is like. As such, you will find information about my research, and education experience but also a little about other activities that I enjoy! 

In the Research Overview page you will find information about my research, while some aspects of my life can be found on the Work Hard Play Hard page.  

The Education Overview page contains my own education philosophy and teaching experience. My hope is that YOU will use the Education Discussion page to ask me questions! The most fun can be found on the Education Tools page where I will post science activities and links that I come across. Please feel free to add other activities or comments regarding the success of any experiments that you try!
