Alison Chubb, Ph.D.

As the daughter of a high-school-teaching mom and a research-scientist dad, the importance of education and science was instilled in Alison at a very young age.

As an evolutionary biologist by training, some of her most fulfilling moments as a scientist have been during her interactions with students of all ages — when they get as excited about evolution and genetics as she is! She love working at 23andMe, not just for the robust science we do here, but also because, along the way, she get to help people learn new things.
