where gender lies along that divide. In that vein, I would like to pursue socio-biology or social
theory surrounding how genetics interact with the social setting. I am also interested in

biology, my interest is female sexuality and I hope to pursue a career researching and writing
about the subject. Following college, I hope to move back to Seattle and begin work in the
