Bio

Welcome to my Oasis student resource page. I am Moira O'Deorain and I am a Professor of Genetics and Genetic Engineering here at Oasis University of Science and Technology. I was appointed the position of Minister of Genetics in 2072, and began teaching at OUST in an official capacity in 2073.

While my specialty is research and development, I simply could not turn down the opportunity to teach a new generation of scientists the wonders of genetics. Such controversial a subject, genetics has developed quite the unfortunate sordid reputation throughout history, and I would like a chance to make things right for this versatile and intriguing discipline.

When not on campus, I split my time between Oasis and Rome, spending about 2/3 of my time in Oasis teaching and researching and the other third in Rome for non-Oasis work.

(And yes, I have heterochromia.)
