Graduate Student Trainee in the laboratory of Eric Pamer

I chose the University of Chicago because of its commitment to graduate research. Unlike most universities, graduate students represent the largest student body at UChicago. Under the mentorship of Eric Pamer, I investigate how lantibiotic-producing bacteria can shape the gut microbiota upon early colonization after antibiotic treatment, leading to prolonged dysbiosis. Through the courses offered on campus and my time in the Pamer Lab, I have had the opportunity to gain quality experience in microbiology research while advancing my wet lab and computational skillsets.
