Sarah Richards, Research Associate II at Indigo, has that rare ability to switch effortlessly between left- and right-brained activities. By day, she’s all science, peering through microscopes and keeping a vigilant eye on the assays that she and her team conduct in Screening. But when the clock strikes a certain hour and she hangs up the lab coat, Sarah’s focus often shifts to artistic pursuits. She’s not only a regular at Somerville’s Mudflat Pottery Studio but also an entrepreneur, running an Etsy store filled with her hand-crafted, guitar-string bracelets. She has a diverse academic background as well, having dipped her toes in marine ecology before settling on microbiology as her college major.
