Zachary Barth - Graduate Student

 

Kristen Legault - Graduate Student

Kristen completed her BSc. in Biology from McGill University and a MSc from the University of New Brunswick in Marine Biology, before realizing that microbiology is by far the most exciting field in biology. She began her PhD at UC Berkeley in September 2016, and is thrilled to have joined the Seed Lab. Although she hasn't yet honed in on a thesis project, she is broadly interested in phage-Vibrio dynamics within the host environment.  She was awarded an NSF GFRP award in 2017. 

 

Amelia McKitterick - Graduate Student

Amelia earned her BA in Biology from Vassar College and her MPH in Hospital & Molecular Epidemiology from the University of Michigan. Currently, Amelia is investigating the cues leading to PLE induction upon phage infection. Awarded the Genetics Training Grant in 2015.

 

Maria Nguyen - Undergraduate Researcher

Maria is an undergraduate double majoring in Biochemistry and Microbial Biology. She studied synthetic chemistry at Stanford before discovering the world of microbes. Now, she’s completely fallen in love with bacteria & phages and is excited to contribute to research in the Seed lab
