Geffre, a Tempe native, is a UA junior pursuing a double-major in Biochemistry and Molecular Cellular Biology. As an undergraduate researcher at the Meredith Lab, Parker is a part of the NSF Signals in the Soil project. She currently works on VOC data analysis, novel sensor testing, and various support roles. After joining UBRP in Spring 2020, Parker believes that undertaking research, especially in the unique field of environmental science, has been an invaluable experience. Microbial and soil fingerprinting has been an especially exciting topic for her to jump into. But more importantly, Parker loves how her research has changed her perspective on the role of the world’s smallest life. Currently, she plans on taking her B.S. degree into an adjacent science-policy field – like criminal forensics. Outside of university, she enjoys adventuring, drawing, and studying British history. Parker is a National Hispanic Scholar, a member of WAESO, and is passionate about learning how science impacts our daily lives.
