This is the last week of classes. Reed seniors are finalizing their theses — a culmination of their year-long projects — before sending them off to faculty readers. As we near the end, my computational biology lab has a new round of students working night and day. Don’t worry, though – Monty the Motivation Whale is there for you.
Monty’s appearance might be due to the fact that one of the Reed seniors is a lead scientist at the Orca Behavior Institute, a non-profit he started in 2015.
