Tom Hundley is involved in one way or another with most of the lab’s projects. Recently he has been genotyping Pseudomonas isolates. He is currently working on whole genome sequencing of several selected P. aeruginosa isolates.
Ogo Onyiri is a PhD student in the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology program. She is investigating the metabolic profiles of household Pseudomonas, emphasizing P. aeruginosa.
Thomas Bourne has a BS in Biology from University of Kentucky. In the Remold lab, he is working with graduate student Michael Garcia to characterize the killing profiles of P. aeruginosa isolated from human homes.
Garrett Brown completed his BS in Biology at University of Louisville. He is working with Ogo Onyiri and Tom Hundley to characterize the biofilm production phenotypes of strains from our household P. aeruginosa collection.
Jeffrey Bara completed his PhD in the Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology program in Dec 2012. His dissertation addressed the evolutionary ecology of dengue virus- mosquito larva interactions. He continues to work in the field of medical entomology, at the Prairie Research Institute in Champagne IL.
Lindsey Willett McGee completed her PhD student in the Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology program in May 2013. Her dissertation addressed the evolution of vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) in response to variable environments. She is currently a post doctoral fellow at the Florida State University, studying evolution of bacteriophage.
Megan Purdy completed her PhD in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology program in August 2013, with a dissertation describing the biogeography of Pseudomonas in human homes. She is currently a student at University of Louisville's School of Law.
