My name is Kai Rasmussen and I am an undergraduate biology student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  I am interested in the emerging field of “astrobotany” or spaceflight plant biology.  I am a data scientist in the NASA funded Gilroy Lab, although previously I filled a role as a molecular biologist.  I studied the peroxidase family of enzymes role in spaceflight.  Currently I am interested in data management and new science education.

As a project, I am the directing manager of a small multi-disciplinary company: dnestudios LLC.

My interests are cybersecurity, cryptography, programming, and skateboarding.

I also like to edit wikipedia articles from time to time (in a constructive way).
