Who’s who in the Weisberg lab
I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Botany and Plant Pathology. I am interested in the role of mobile genetic elements in plant-microbe evolution. We work to understand how plants and microbes interact, as well as the role of mobile genetic elements in these symbioses. We use genomics, molecular biology, and computational methods to study populations of microbial pathogens and characterize their evolution, how pathogens spread in agricultural systems, and how new pathogen lineages emerge.

I am a postdoctoral scholar in the Weisberg lab.
I am a senior undergraduate pursuing a degree in Microbiology.
I am a second year undergraduate pursuing a Honors Bachelor of Science in Biological Data Sciences. When I am not in the lab, I love exploring the outdoors looking for birds and plants around the Puget Sound area.
