About me

Industry Student
Occupation Graduate Student- University of Wisconsin- Stevens Point
Location Stevens Point, WI, United States
Introduction My name is Kristina Lapp. I have lived in Wisconsin my whole life and, for most of it, lived with my father, Larry, who looks like the epitome of old time mountain-man. Acts like it, too. That’s probably where my love of nature, animals, plants, and really anything that’s alive came from. He took me fishing and hunting as soon as I could hold a pole and gun (legally, anyway) and when he took up trapping, I was right there running his trap-line with him. I went to college to work with animals and ended up getting an interest in animal diseases. So here I am, getting my graduate degree in wildlife parasitology, dissecting fish and muskrats, walking around with forgotten vials of parasites in my pocket (true story), and starting blogs. Although my work is in parasitology, I'll likely be posting in a wide variety of topics, including ecology, genetics, cell biology, evolution, paleontology, alternative energy, medicine and disease, military science, and many others.
