Meet Misc.

My name is Rachel Alenius-Thalhuber. My maiden name (Alenius) is pronounced like the word “miscellaneous”- which has always been my nickname. It also describes the content, since I plan on addressing a hodgepodge of miscellaneous scientific topics on the blog.

I am a 26 year old woman (she/her/hers). My husband Tom and I live in Fort Worth, Texas, where I am working on my Ph.D. in biology.

My passion is understanding the world around me through science and sharing that understanding with others. This blog is focused on how science relates to my varied interests like skincare, plants, food, and more. I think a better understanding of the world makes all of our lives a little easier.
