Hello my name is Jake Shaw and I am a fourth year with a major in Molecular Genetics and minor in EEOB. I am from LaGrange, a small town in northern Ohio. I became interested in the environment at a young age and that has continued throughout my life. I joined the ENR Scholars program after being accepted into OSU which led me to adding my minor. After graduation, I hope to go into research on evolutionary genetics.


I really enjoy learning about how individual species within an ecosystem interact with others in order to maintain and balance it. I look forward to learning more about different species of plants from an ecological perspective.
