Melissa Steele-Ogus grew up in Berkeley, California. She received a BS in Environmental Sciences and BA in Molecular Biology from the University of California, Berkeley, in 2012. She earned a PhD in Biology from the University of Washington in 2021, studying the actin cytoskeleton of Giardia lamblia. In her free time, she enjoys dancing, baking, and birdwatching. She may be secretly some sort of weird bug, but probably isn't.
