Lisa Krieger Science & Medicine Research Reporter City of residence: Palo Alto What do you like best about your job? I’ve got the ‘Wow’ beat. We’re privileged to live in a place where every single day - experts are exploring the scientific secrets of life. I get to peek behind the curtains. It’s always interestin­g, and often rich with good news. Most memorable moment? Those early morning Nobel Prize press conference­s, just hours after the phone calls from Stockholm, when scientists enter the room to deafening applause. I love a place that treats its scientists like rock stars. Stanford’s Paul Berg - ‘80, Chemistry - gave me his autograph! Favorite place to go in the South Bay? Palo Alto’s Arastrader­o Preserve. This spring, for the first time, it had a nest of bald eagles - minutes away from the heart of Silicon Valley!
