It’s time for a new year of The Graduates. We’re starting the year off right with LIZards! That’s right, join your host Tesla Monson as she interviews Liz Ferrer, vertebrate paleontologist in the Department of Integrative Biology here at UC Berkeley. Ferrer studies variation in the face and head of varanids, a widely diverse group of lizards that includes Komodo dragons, monitor lizards, and many more. Other topics in the interview include Ferrer’s substantial outreach efforts and BASIS, Bay Area Scientists in Schools.
