Director of Happiness

Masha Mao Boz is the head of our security and student outreach. She helps maintain a friendly and playful atmosphere at the lab, intellectually contributes and provides samples for the Molecular Evolution project, and assists in all field sampling efforts. Masha aspires to be a featured author on several molecular evolution manuscripts, and she frequently attends UCSD biology lectures. Besides being an avid swimmer and hiker, she takes a lot of pride walking off leash in public whenever she can get away with it. Masha’s best friends are Sail and Zoe.
