BS, Mercer University
PhD, Vanderbilt University
Member of the Mercer University faculty since 2016
Research Interests: Natural Product Discovery and Biosynthesis. I am particularly interested in understanding how bacteria biosynthesize antibiotics so that we can then harness these systems to produce novel antibiotics to combat antibacterial resistance.
Fun Facts: I enjoy spontaneous craft projects, college football, watching superhero movies, playing with my two dogs (a grehound and a chiweenie, both rescues), being outdoors, and teaching at my alma mater. Go Bears!
