What is one science site you have never visited but would like to?

Long-distance: Cherry Springs, PA; a Dark Sky location for viewing celestials at night.

What is the most important problem today's science should solve?

1. The influence of monied interests on what science gets funded, who does it, how studies are designed, and how (and if) they are interpreted to the public.

Who are your scientific heroes or role models?

Henry Lai, U. of Washington; Lennart Hardell, M.D., Sweden; Theron Randolph, U.S.

What turns you on about science?

The interconnections between things. The ability to zoom in or zoom out to learn more. The challenge of finding out what is real, isolating the variables.

What are your favorite resources for keeping abreast of general science?

General science is too big for me to keep abreast of. I read a lot in my specific fields of interest, and often check into readings suggested by other scientist friends. I also learn from talking with people and just observing.


I am Marn and my field is psychology. I have, by accident, become acquainted with bioelectromagnetics which has expanded my interest in physical and biological science. I also edit science books and articles for foreign scientists.
