Kerin Law, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer, has a B.A. degree in Ecology, Evolution and Organismal Biology from Vanderbilt University and a PhD in Genetics with a focus on population genetics from the University of Georgia. Enthralled with science from a young age, she started field and lab work early, publishing her first scientific paper in plant genetics at the age of 19. Kerin has worked on the evolutionary genetics and ecology of plants for over 10 years with a wide range of species across the globe with a specialization in method development of new genomic approaches for non-model species. She has won several awards for her work, including the coveted National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. Leading genetic test development at LeafWorks, Kerin loves how DNA-based technology can allow us to discover and appreciate the intricacies of medicinal plants.
