I am a scientist with broad interests in the temporal dynamics of the human microbiome and how this is impacts human health.  I recently completed my PhD in the department of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology at the University of Idaho, working under the mentorship of Dr. Larry Forney. There, my work focused on the factors that drive changes in the human vaginal microbiome.

Currently, I am a Postdoctoral research fellow in the Woods lab at the University of Michigan. In the Woods lab, we study the evolution of antibiotic resistance and the transmission of resistant microbes among and between humans in the hospital environment.
