About Me

Photo: ActionPhotos by Marianne; Dress: Liz Ritter

Hello! I am Potassium. That is a picture of me skating in my very first figure skating competition (and I won first place in my category!).

Fun facts about me:

  • I received my biochemistry PhD in October 2014 and I completed a Science Communication certificate program in 2017.
  • I move around a lot. I am currently in Washington but I’m originally from California. I’ve also lived in New Mexico and Colorado (hint: this blog was started when I was in grad school in Colorado).
  • My husband Cobalt and I have a kitty named Tarantula.

I love (in no apparent order):

  • sharks
  • whales
  • cats
  • stuffed animals
  • photography
  • figure skating
  • my friends and family
  • microscopes
  • science communication
  • reading
  • learning new languages

Some of the cameras I will be posting pictures from:

  • Nikon D750 – My DSLR. Love it. With this camera, I only shoot in Manual mode. Makes it more challenging and helps me get better at photography.
  • Nikon D80 – My old DSLR. I haven’t been taking very many pictures with this guy recently, but I usually bring him along in case someone else wants to practice their photography skills
  • My iPhone XS!

  1. I HAD to check out a blog that was called iampotassium. Very cool! Love the controlled randomness of your post (I mean that in a good way). Can’t wait to keep checking back!

  2. Your photos are great. You like to eat? I have How-to’s and food videos over at Savor the Food. I would appreciate your comments and readership..when your in between photo taking and the Lab. :)

    Looking forward to what other photos Potassium posts!! :)

    Thanks for sharing.
