Gravity's Rainbow

botany, shoes, books, and justice

About

I’m a graduate student doing research somewhere between ecology and evolution. This blog chronicles my experiences being sick and queer in academia with lots of asides about the plants, shoes, and books I love. If you like it here, you might also want to follow me on twitter or read my posts on Tenure, She Wrote.

My blog’s name has nothing to do with Pynchon’s rather incredible book and everything to do with projectile motion.

The real Sarcozona

In addition to serving as my pseudonym, Sarcozona is a genus in the Aizoaceae. It means “fleshy involucre.”
