About This Blog

This is a blog documenting my time in grad school doing a Ph.D. on human hair diversity.

But rather than just studying human hair diversity, my academic life revolves around three overlapping topics: humans, hair, diversity. Because to understand a particular topic, you have to break it down into its components and then study those components from as many aspects as possible.


I include estimated reading times (based on 200 words per minute) and word count at the top of all posts and pages because I sure know I always appreciate knowing how long I’ll be procrastinating what I’m in for.
