BIOS Intern Featured in NSF Scientist Selfie Series

Jerry Goss, an Olin College student and 2020 NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Intern, worked with zooplankton ecologist Leocadio Blanco-Bercial during his 12-week internship at BIOS. He was featured in the most recent NSF Scientist Selfie video, part of a series designed to help students discover careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields.

The latest Scientist Selfie video, promoted by the National Science Foundation (NSF), features BIOS Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) intern Jerry Goss and his studies of plankton with BIOS ecologist Leocadio Blanco-Bercial.

From the ocean to the lab, the video takes viewers along as Goss shares his experience working on an NSF-funded project intended to classify plankton specifies to make it easier for scientists to uncover global environmental changes.

The Scientist Selfie series offers viewers an intimate look into a researcher or scientist’s life and work. The goal of the series is to inspire students to think about pursuing a career in STEM fields. Visit the NSF’s Facebook page to watch the video, as well as like, comment, and share with your networks.
