As the Director of Research at the Center for Microbiome Innovation at the University of California, I work to bring together industry and academia to further microbiome research. Prior to taking this position, I was a post-doctoral research associate working with Dr. Rob Knight to understand the ecology and evolution of the microscopic life that is associated with human and other animal hosts using next-generation sequencing technologies. I received my B.Sc. in Genetics from the University of Georgia and my Ph.D in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from the University of Colorado.
