    in the lab of Dr Stephen Meltzer I earned my MS in Biotechnology Biodefense at Johns Hopkins University and during this time I was a research technician in the lab of Dr Valeria Culotta In the Culotta lab I worked on identifying targets of manganese toxicity using metabolomics in Saccharomyces cerevisiae and also worked on characterizing superoxide dismutase activity in the Lyme disease pathogen Borrelia burgdorferi Here at Duke I

    the people I served Fascinated by the microbiological and immunological dimensions of disease I studied biology at the University of North Carolina in Charlotte As I studied one core theme that consistently drew my attention was endosymbiosis In the Valdivia lab we work to understand Chlamydia trachomatis an obligate intracellular bacterium In order to replicate within a host cell Chlamydia cloisters itself inside a membrane bound compartment called an inclusion

    my undergraduate research in the lab of Dr Lynn Hancock My work with Dr Hancock focused on Enterococcus faecalis a gram positive bacterium that causes a number hospital acquired infections and its ability to form biofilms It was while working in this lab where I gained my interest in research which led me to graduate school Even though my undergraduate research was in bacteria I have broad research interests which

    on BamA a Gram negative bacteria outer membrane protein which is responsible for the assembly of other beta barrel proteins in outer membrane At Duke I am a member of Aballay lab where I investigate the neural control of innate immunity using the model organism C elegans Recent studies highlight the function of neuropeptide like protein nlp in mediating pathogen resistance in nematode C elegans By employing forward and reverse

    undergraduate training program at Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais UFMG Brazil from 2008 to 2011 During my training I had the opportunity to work in two different laboratories the Virus Laboratory and the Ca2 Signaling Laboratory having Jônatas S Abrahão and Maria F Leite as my advisors respectively In the Virus Laboratory I gained experience using molecular biology tools and studied poxviruses and Mimiviruses helping in the discovery and characterization of previously unknown viruses and hosts In the Ca2 signaling laboratory I helped in developing a treatment for cancer based on intranuclear Ca2 buffering and in studying how nucleoplasmic reticulum stress alters Ca2 signaling My specific interests whithin virology lie on the interaction of Flavivirus with the human host The genus Flavivirus comprises single stranded RNA viruses most of which are arthropod borne Many of these viruses can cause high health impacts and a couple of examples are Yellow Fever virus which has an extremely high mortality rate and Dengue virus which infects millions of people every year in many different countries and could be expanding towards the US While at the Garcia Blanco Lab I have the opportunity to study Flavivirus Human interactions using state of the art techniques

    Tech GO HOKIES in the spring of 2012 with degrees in Biochemistry and Biological Sciences While at VT I spent two and a half years working in the lab of Dr Florian Schubot examining the protein interactions of the opportunistic pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa The primary focus of my research as well as my senior thesis was the anti activator protein ExsD and its role in the regulation of the P aeruginosa type III secretion system I also spent a summer at the College of William and Mary working in the lab of Dr Eric Engstrom where I assisted with an ongoing project investigating ethylene synthesis in Arabidopsis thaliana These experiences as well as some of my undergraduate class work led me to graduate school and my decision to study microbiology I am particularly interested in clinically relevant microbial pathogenesis and so I was attracted to Duke for it s medical atmosphere and wide variety of research opportunities I joined the lab of Dr Andrew Alspaugh which uses a genetic approach to study the human fungal pathogen Cryptococcus neoformans I am interested in processes C neoformans undergoes in order to adapt and survive in the host environment Outside of the lab
