Meet the 2021-22 Biology UDRs
Megan Geller is a Senior at Brandeis University majoring in Biology on the pre-dental track and can usually be found with a hot chocolate in her hand. She became a Biology major after taking and loving all of the introductory biology classes and forming many strong connections with the biology department faculty. Megan is very excited to be joining the Biology UDR team for the coming school year. This past semester Megan was TA for Biology 15b with Professor Miara. When not in class, Megan is a member of the Brandeis gymnastics club team, the Brandeis club cheerleading team, an Editor of The Justice (Brandeis University's Independent Student Newspaper) and an active member of Brandeis Buddies, which is part of the Waltham Group. In her free time, she loves to bake, play the ukulele, do needlepoint, listen to music and watch movies. As a Biology UDR, Megan hopes to bridge the gap between the students and faculty so that everyone feels like they are a part of our biology family. If you have any questions feel free to reach out to her and she can help you navigate the Biology major at Brandeis.
