I am sad to leave behind a great community at Rice University, but I am pleased to start my new position as an Assistant Professor of Biology at Farmingdale State College - SUNY. Classes start this week and I am so excited to get my students engaged about Microbiology and Infectious Diseases!
I had a great time attending my first Society of Comparative and Integrative Biology (SICB) conference in Austin, TX. I presented data on using sponge microbiomes to investigate the impacts of flooding events on reefs at the Flower Garden Banks National
So proud of my undergraduate mentee, Kelsey, who did a fantastic job presenting her poster on the microbiomes of corals from the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary
