Carol is a biologist with specialized knowledge of biotechnology, analytical biochemistry, and mycology. Based on research found in primary journal articles she designs research proposals and experimental protocols to further explore issues within these areas of inquiry. She is currently working with fungi and developing cultivation techniques for several species that have been found to have culinary and medicinal value.
Carol has worked on clinical and research projects during her twenty years in academia and in the biotechnology industry. She has designed and performed experiments in the laboratory for research and quality control purposes including protein characterizations, analysis of nucleic acids and evaluations of protein modifications. Part of that work has included writing technical reports, experimental summaries and protocols for customers, colleagues, and students. Carol also has developed Standard Operating Procedures for biotechnology facilities that follow Good Manufacturing Practices.
Throughout her career,the written projects she has created have been designed to clarify complex technical information using concrete, specific language. These documents function as essential tools to the scientist preparing for experiments, collecting data or calibrating equipment. Carol has shown a great passion for science and she applies this to the writing process as well. In this way,she is able to create documents that are usable and supportive of obtaining repeatable experimental data.
