Hi! I'm Emily Temple-Wood, known as Keilana around here. (Just because I get asked sometimes, it's pronounced "Kay-lah-nah" or "Kay", not "Key".) I've been around the project since April 2007, and came back from a decently long hiatus in 2012. I'm an administrator—I passed RfA in November 2007 and January 2008—but I don't use the tools much anymore. I have developed a kit for running anti-systemic bias workshops at institutions and am always looking for feedback and/or thoughts from people who have used it! I write mainly about women scientists and women's health, through WikiProject Women Scientists and WikiProject Women's Health. Systemic bias threatens our projects in a very real, imminent way. I've written some articles on history, astronomy, women scientists, medicine, and some other stuff that I've forgotten. (Barbara McClintock was super cool tho, go read about her instead of me.)
These days I've been writing exclusively about the COVID-19 pandemic.
In real life, I have a bachelor's degree in molecular biology from Loyola University Chicago, and a D.O. from Midwestern University; I am beginning as a resident physician in Family Medicine at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital. I've spent time as a medical assistant and EMT-B as well. My research during undergrad was in Drosophila developmental biology, focusing on gonadal and nervous system morphogenesis. I'm busy (see: resident) but will do my best to get back to you with anything you need.
