A Las Vegas native, Sotodeh graduated from UNLV with an M.S in Biological Sciences within the School of Life Sciences. Her love for moss (which she describes as simplistic and understated, yet incredibly resilient and complex) has driven her research, which focuses on the desiccation and light tolerance in arid-land mosses. She has been consulting at our Writing Center for four years alongside teaching the BIOL 191 (Intro to Organismal Biology) lab. In addition to being the Queen of Moss and sewing in her spare time, she also enjoys reading pop culture analysis and poetry. She loves working with writers to help them overcome writer’s block, especially with CVs, resumes, and personal statements.
