About Me

Posted by Amelia on Saturday, July 20, 2019


I am currently a postdoc at the Leibniz Institute of Natural Product Research and Infection Biology - Hans Knöll Institute in Jena, Germany and the Institute for Hygiene and Microbiology at the University of Würzburg studying fungal biology and comparitive genomics of Aspergillus and Candida spp, with a special focus on antifungal resistance.

Prior to that, I was a PhD student at the University of Utah in the group of Matthew Mulvey studying how the vast genetic diversity seen in Escherichia coli strains translates to differences in disease progression and host response during sepsis using a novel zebrafish model of disease we developed.

When not in the lab, you can most likely find me out riding a bike, hiking, or geeking out on data science and visualization.

This site was created in R using the fantastic blogdown package by Yihui Xie, Amber Thomas, and Alison Presmanes Hill. I also thank Cedric Scherer for the inspiration and helpful github repo in creating this site.
