Beth Adamowicz

Postdoctoral Associate


Research Lab:

I am interested in the impact of metabolic interactions on the eco-evolutionary dynamics of microbial communities. During my PhD, I studied how metabolic cross-feeding influenced the mechanisms and rate of antibiotic resistance evolution in a model microbial community. In my post-doc, I am using computational modeling techniques to study how metabolite exchange between gut microbes and human colon cells influences the development and progression of colorectal cancer.
