Hey folks! My name is Jack Waite (he/him) and I’m a rising junior majoring in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology. I’m super excited to get to know all of you and introduce you to all the amazing people and resources at Lewis & Clark! Originally from Bakersfield, CA, I came to LC to be part of a supportive, intellectual community. Aside from working in the lab of Dr. Torigoe, I’m the treasurer for Students Engaged in Eco-Defense (SEED), I tutor at the Symbolic and Quantitative Resource Center (SQRC), and I take classical piano lessons. I’m passionate about all areas of science and making the scientific community a positive, equitable, and supportive one!
