I’m Tess Eidem, Ph.D., a microbiologist with a passion for communication and leadership. I have a commitment to my trainees to provide not only deep, technical STEM skills but also those broad cross-cutting experiences in management and entrepreneurship that will allow them to be an innovative STEM workforce able to meet the challenges of the 21st century.

I joined the Paul Smith’s College Natural Science Department in December 2018 to enhance their new Human Health and the Environment Program (read more here and here)! I strive to connect with the local community and build relationships with local teachers and businesses. This connection to the community provides students of all ages with relevant STEM training and a professional network that they can tap into for the rest of their careers.

Check out My Portfolio to see some of my creations, and Read My Blog to see what projects I’m working on. I will be adding more information to my Resources page in Spring 2019 on undergraduate teaching and creative projects. Please Contact Me if you have questions, comments, ideas, or suggestions!
