Maryam Zaringhalam is a Brooklyn-based biologist, blogger, and web designer. Following her graduation from New York University in 2010, she traveled across the sea to work for NYU Abu Dhabi in its inaugural year, where she taught chemistry and helped develop academic support for the sciences. In 2011, Maryam began her tenure at The Rockefeller University in New York, where she is pursuing her Ph.D. in RNA biology {with computers} in Nina Papavasiliou’s Laboratory of Lymphocyte Biology. In 2012, following a minor identity crisis, Maryam founded ArtLab: a blog and an event series dedicated to exploring science through the lens of art, thereby uniting, or reuniting, two of her most favorite things. When she is not practicing her science or working on ArtLab, Maryam can be found designing the web, a skill she picked up and has been honing since the 7th grade, when she designed her first website: For Horse Lovers Only.
