Women in science have a rough go of it, especially as they enter the post-doctoral phase that coincide with many ladies’ late 20s.

In this video, we chat with Elizabeth Iorns, a co-founder of Science Exchange, a Y Combinator startup focused on optimizing research and the use of high-dollar scientific equipment through technology.

In this interview, Iorns talks about women dropping out of science work as they enter the baby-makin’ phase of life, about being a minority (both in age and gender) in her Y Combinator incubator class, and about what it’s really like to work with Paul Graham.

Enjoy the vid, and stay tuned for more.
