B.S. Biochemistry and Molecular Biology with honors, Pennsylvania State University, 2007
Ph.D. Microbiology, Arizona State University, 2013
I work with Associate Professor Daniel Bond on using genomics and bioinformatics to understand microbial metal reduction and carbon cycling in the deep subsurface.
