Hi everyone, my name is Parker Gillis. I am a junior
here at UIC, and I am currently majoring in Biology.
The picture you are seeing to the side is from a Bass
research internship I worked last summer. After
graduating I hope to do post-grad work at a university near the ocean, where I can do more research in the water. Specifically, I would love to research the coral bleaching that is occurring in the coral reefs off the coast of Australia. When I am not
at school, I love to skateboard, draw, play guitar, and listen to music.
