My name is Laura Jacobsen and I am currently a junior at the University of Utah. I was born in New York City but moved to Utah when I was six years old. I am studying Biology and minoring in Chemistry and Spanish with the goal to teach high school. I want to help high schoolers develop a love and appreciation for science and the nature that surrounds them.

I joined the lab in January 2018 and have been working with Graham Goodman. I have really enjoyed my time at the lab so far and have been amazed at the observations we have seen in how ectoparasites and the host affect one another.

If I’m not on campus or in the lab, I am outside in the mountains. I absolutely love the outdoors and being surrounded by the natural beauty this earth has to offer.
