Five Questions - Christina Agapakis

Christina Agapakis is a biologist, writer, artist, and a mother of two. She collaborates with engineers, designers, artists, and social scientists to explore unexpected connections between microbiology, technology, art, and popular culture.

Christina invited me over to her apartment where we talked about world travel, bias in biochemistry, how framing failure can reveal the process of learning, the difference between STEM and STEAM (and how STEAM is better), and the root of all consciousness…ya know, light-hearted topics. Oh, and of course she answered Five Questions. Meet Christina.
