Graduate Student
Originally from Oregon, Joe graduated from Northwestern University in 2015, where he studied how methanotrophic bacteria acquire copper and mitigate its cytotoxicity in Dr. Amy Rosenzweig's lab. He then spent a two-year fellowship at the National Institutes of Health studying bacterial outer membrane biogenesis in the lab of Dr. Susan Buchanan, followed by stints in drug discovery at a couple of biotechnology companies in the San Francisco Bay Area. Joe joined the BBS program in 2020 and the Kruse lab in 2021. When he's not in the lab, he likes climbing, skiing, and running in the mountains around New England and playing any kind of music.
