Ashley Alvarez serves as a scientific advisor with more than 7 years of teaching experience in biochemistry and biotechnology. Her early research centered on characterization of a novel class of enhanced ethylene response (eer) regulators and their synergy with another well-known phytohormone, auxin. Dr. Alvarez also investigated two chemical compounds that opposed auxin responses, and subsequently blocked aspects of ethylene response, further supporting interdependent interactions. Most recently, her research involved the study of agravitropic Arabidopsis seedlings and the role of the vacuole in gravisensing. The project was funded by NASA with a specific aim to better understand the mechanisms of gravity perception in young seedlings on earth. There is potential to couple the discoveries of gravitropic signaling with known chemical inhibitors of gravitropism and vacuole trafficking in order to modulate plant growth conditions in microgravity.
Dr. Alvarez completed her post-doctoral research in the field of Plant and Microbial Biology at North Carolina State University, and earned her Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from the University of California, Riverside.

Jason’s 15+ years of design and creative direction lifted off at an acclaimed ad agency with clients including John Deere, Sherwin-Williams, Nestlé, HSBC Bank, and Goodyear.
Stage two ignition then launched him in-house as the Creative Director for an American toy manufacturer, coincidently named STEP2, competing with toy giant Little Tikes. He mastered the Elmo voice during photoshoots with 3-year-old kids.
An affinity for alliteration and antsy for an agency encore, a trajectory thrust nudged him to a startup niche agency in the mining industry. As the Visual Design Director, he showed Earth blasters, rock crushers, aggregate movers, hole augers, shale frackers, oil drillers, and gas line layers how to dust off their brands in a cliquey B2B domain. It’s a good thing we have reusable rockets now in case they collectively ruin our precious Pale Blue Dot.
Saus, as many call him, reached payload separation as an early-adopter crypto zealot and spent much of the pandemic building digital products and experiences around a relatively new dual-token cryptocurrency. But this isn’t financial advice. Nor will he arbitrarily explain Bitcoin – unless asked. Then he’ll totally tell you. HODL.
The Elmo voice still comes in handy with his two-tongued talking toddler Stella and beefy bellied baby boy Roman. And he dearly misses live concerts, uninterrupted nights of sleep, and finishing a single episode of TV with his wife Lynsey without dozing off 13 minutes into the show.
