My name is Joe Ballenger, and this is my professional website, and personal blog. If you’re curious about what I’m doing, my CV is at the top of the page. If you’d like to know what I think about various topics, or if you wish to see a writing sample then please check out my blog!
Since this is a personal website, it is important to note that any opinions expressed here are solely mine and mine alone. They may not necessarily reflect the views of any employer-past or present-friends, families, affiliates, so on and so forth. All words are mine, and mine alone.
I am an entomologist by training, although I also consider myself a molecular biologist. I earned my MSc at the University of Georgia studying host-parasite interactions, which is a passion of mine. I am also fascinated with biotechnology, in particular how biotechnology can be used properly. I am currently working as a contractor at a large biotech company.
I enjoy cinema, and right now I’m doing a lot of touristy stuff in St. Louis. I enjoy cooking, and I like to play bartender occasionally.
