Role: Principal Investigator

I fell in love with intracellular bacteria in graduate school. I've been chasing pathogens all around the US, from California, to Montana, to Texas, and now here in Wyoming. It's been an adventure.

When I'm not in the lab, my adventuring takes me outdoors to bike, hike and camp.

Role: Laboratory Technician

Leslie joined the team in February of 2021, and without her we'd be lost! She is integral to setting up the lab and getting things running.
