I'm luck to work (or to have worked) with lots of smart and wonderful scientists, who are also really great people! Here are some of them (listed alphabetically):
I'm also lucky to work with some of the best students around on a variety of projects. You should ask them about their projects.

Other (non-academic) interests
I love listening to and playing music, especially playing violin, piano and singing. Former groups and musical experiences include (in roughly reverse chronological order): The choir of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, the Old Town School of Folk Music, the Boston University Vocal Jazz Ensemble, the Boston University Symphony, Chamber, and Opera Orchestras, Soesterberg International Music Festival (now InterHarmony International Music Festival), Michigan Youth Symphony Orchestra, Killington Music Festival, Interlochen Arts Camp, Blue Lake Suzuki Family Camp.
Other interests include: cooking, hiking, reading, knitting and crocheting, musical theatre, comedy, and biking. I'm also a big sports fan and love watching sports and cheering (loudly) for my favorite teams: hockey (Detroit Red Wings; BU Terriers), baseball (Boston Red Sox; Chicago Cubs), and basketball (Chicago Bulls). I also love traveling (photos on this site include: Dingle Peninsula, Ireland; Bilbao, Spain; Paros, Greece; Nijmegen, The Netherlands; Honolulu, Hawaii; San Juan, Puerto Rico, and Sedona, Arizona).
If you are in need of legal representation in Oregon or Illinois, I can think of no better option than O'Keefe, Rivera, & Berk.
