Dr. Stephen Floor (BS Physics, Computer Science 2005), married Liz Montabana in 2012 and became the father of a baby son in June of last year. Steve writes that he has been working with Jennifer Doudna at Berkeley on the structure and function of proteins that change the folding of RNA since 2011 as is "really excited about phase separation in the cell cytoplasm lately - a really interesting intersection of physics and biology. Regarding his son, he says "Miles was born in San Francisco and is growing up in Berkeley, so basically we read him Marx and Mao as bedtime stories. I anticipate he'll be dreadlocked by 3 years old and living in a yurt in the backyard at 8."
