My name is Christina Anaya and I am a 4th year Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Integrative Biology at Oklahoma State University. I was recently awarded a United States Fulbright/National Science Foundation Fellowship to conduct research in Iceland. Iceland is known as the “land of fire and ice” and I couldn’t imagine a better place to conduct scientific research. I want to share my adventures with friends, family and anyone who has ever thought of traveling to Iceland. I am most interested in sharing my work with young students who are considering careers in science or need inspiration to go and accomplish their dreams. Each week I will share my journey through pictures and writing as I experience the people, culture, landscape, and nature of Iceland.
