About Sheila

I am a scientist, my research area is plant biology. I have a Ph.D. (Genetics) from the Univ. Missouri (1978). I am an advisor to the postdoctoral fellows in my department at UC-Berkeley, giving them career advice. I also teach courses about scientific writing and presentations, both in the US and in other countries (most recently in China). I would be happy to help with reviewing resumes, cover letters, interviewing tips, etc.
