Genevieve Gilson is the production assistant on Innovation Hub and loves that each day offers new ways of looking at the world. Before coming to WGBH, she produced DVD bonus features in Los Angeles.

Currently, Genevieve is also working on her first novel, which is set in the seamy world of Iowa academia.
